My New Necklace

While we were camping and at the Pow-wow, I picked up a very inspiring book.

I had looked at it before, but never opened a copy.
When I did... well, I just had to have a copy.

The book has a lot of wonderful ways to use my looms.

As you know, I have quite a collection of looms.

Some I like to use more than others.

Well, the piece that inspired me the most in on page 51.
The Iris Nouveau necklace.

This was just the inspiration I needed to make my own!

I designed the piece in now time.
In fact, I had the design in my head before we left camp.
I went right home and put it together on Bead Tools 4.

Then I strung the loom and got started beading.
It seemed to take me forever to complete.
With so many other things going on, I just have not had a lot of time to bead lately.

It is done!!!

This piece is All Mine!
I will not be publishing a pattern for it.
I want to keep it for me!
It features my Wolf Paw Motif and a whole bunch of Citrine crystals in the fringe.
Citrines are very special to me.
They are a protection stone and they also help increase creativity.
I can't wait to wear this necklace to the Pow-wow!

Hugs and Blessings,

P.S.  I have also re-worked my "Wolf Tracks Cuff" pattern to fit a metal cuff blank.  The eliminates the need to worry about why size to make a cuff.
