Some pictures taken in better light of the necklace inspired by Karen's ceramic beads. Some of the fabric beads are scrunched up squares of different bits from my stash and wound-around with tapestry wool. The tie-died pieces were a swap with Marion (from http//www.Artmixter.etsy.com )- I've got some stunning colours in the collection. There are some lovely velvet ones and I made a few with vintage crochet lace, which is a soothing creamy colour. Of course there had to be some felted beads too and some tiddlers made of balls of the same tapestry wool used to wind the larger fabric beads. I've used three of Karen's beads in this one, and they add some nice weight to the necklace, without making the whole thing heavy round your neck. The necklace is strung on some discreet ribbon, so that you can wear the necklace at a length to suit you. I think the whole thing has come out quite summery and feminine.
