View Full Version : 8 Little Beads

I think I might be starting to get this! Of course, it took almost all day to get 8 beads all just about the same size...but I did it!! They are silvered ivory overlaid with silver foil and transparent amethyst. I've included a couple of photos of the pieces that I made with them. I made the silver pendant with PMC+ - the text is from the Book of Kells.

Those are really pretty. I have trouble getting my silver to look shiny under a transparent color. I need to PPP
Debbie, Your beads are fabulous and very uniform, and that set is just gorgeous! I love the pendant and would also like to see it closer!
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks :) The foil took a bit of practice and there were several beads when it got too hot and burned off. I love the look of the foil under transparent. I'm attaching a close up of the pendant.

Really nice! Wonderful design incorporating your beads!

VERY COOL! I really like the whole thing. You did an awesome job. (It also inspires me because I'm trying to figure out what to do with some beads that my DH said would be enjoyed by his mom. For the life of me, I hadn't come up with any way to make it into a pretty necklace, but I think the pendant idea to tie it all together will be just the ticket! Now I just need to figure out a pendant design to go with those beads!) Anywho, I am impressed with how uniform you got your beads and that pendant is simply beautiful!
