Starry Road Slider Bead Necklace

Karen Totten has a bead in a new design for her that she calls a slider bead.  It is really a nice size.  My first inclination was to use it in a bracelet, but I am still experimenting with this style of necklace - one where beads are strung downward, rather than sideways, through a focal bead.  In fact, a similar necklace is being published in the Fall issue of Stringing.  I really can't wait until I can share that with you, but until then......

I also used African trade white brass and copper bicone beads and turquoise howlite with glass beads.

Great job Karen.  It is a wonderful bead and I really enjoyed using it.
