On my bead table today I have an assortment of Miyuki Delicas and Swarovski Crystals in warm purples, pinks, and reds. The Delicas were used to create the pendant of this necklace. By using a combination of peyote stitch and herringbone stitch, I completed a super cool bead woven triangle. This weave is so much fun, I kind of went a little crazy with it-- making triangles here at Beadaholique, and late into the night at home! Look for an upcoming tutorial video on how to make these triangles.
On my table is a glass tube bottle with ornate metal surround by Patera and it is home to a wire wrapped beaded flower I made (video coming soon). I have always loved the thought of a "treasure" being incorporated into a piece of jewelry and I think this glass vial is perfect for that. I was also thinking of putting a particularly touching fortune cookie saying inside of another glass vial or even a small love note. For the clasp, I used a key toggle bar and round, I think it is very fitting for this piece.
