You see that four of these are labeled wedding projects. This is because my step-son is getting married next month and I have been fussing over which necklace to wear with my SMOG (Step-Mom of groom) outfit. So far, the winner is coming out in the #1 position. This pattern is Golden-Edged Ruffles by Shelley Nybakke from the December 2007 Beadwork Magazine. (Yes, I have hung onto that pattern for over five years!) I need to get booking on it to be ready in time for the big event!
The good news is I did complete one of these projects just in time for Karen's retirement party this week-end. We will sure miss our dear friend around the office. I started the necklace to get practice on my tubular right-angle weave and decided I liked the strap so well, I needed to add a cabochon. I purchased a bunch of dichroic glass cabs on eBay a couple years ago and this one was one of my favorites. I embellished and it was good to go!
