I haven't posted much about beading in our weekly challenges and the theme of texture took me there with a project I completed last week. This necklace is designed by Annette Mackrel from April 2010 BeadAndButton. It was one of the possibilities I had picked for my step-son's wedding earlier this year and while I selected another design, I was really happy with how this turned out.
I love the texture of the spiral design but even better is the embellished herringbone mid-section.
The spiral is super-versatile and can be used as a focal or as a bracelet component.
