Started some new beadwork...


Hurray! I finally got started on some beadwork besides squares for the annual breast cancer project. I need an extravagant, over-the-top piece for one of my dressy cruise outfits, so that was the motivation. In addition, I've collected--ahem...hoarded--amber pieces for years. This particular piece was purchased in 1991 in Warnemuende, Germany for 108 DM, about $65 as I recall. At that same time I was gifted an amber bracelet on elastic by some German friends. The elastic had stretched beyond good use, so I've decided to cut it apart, use some pieces on the necklace, and the rest on a matching bracelet.


In terms of colors, I'm using a split complementary combination of blue-violet, yellow and orange. Here's the start with more to follow, as time permits....
