Happy second day of National Craft Month! I'm off to a good start: two days in a row. We'll see how long I can keep this up.... :)
Yesterday I mentioned that I went to this fabulous little bead shop in Old Town Albuquerque, called New Mexico Bead and Fetish. And, like I stated, this place is AWESOME. I fear I will spend many a paychecks in there. I'll probably have to take my husband with me every time I go so that he can help restrain me from buying the entire store.
However, he was generous and agreed I could buy these fabulous copper beads with gold flecks, in addition to leaf bead I blogged about yesterday. I love these beads! They are so pretty, and the sparkle from the gold flecks is absolutely gorgeous. I knew I needed to show them off!
In order to keep the beads from sliding all over the place on the strand, I tied little knots on either end of the beads to hold them in place.
Then I tied the ends of the strand to a metal clasp to complete the necklace, and actually make it something I could wear.
I think I'm really going to like how it turned out! I really like how the beads themselves really pop!
