Another Redo....

Here is another example of a necklace that I redesigned recently.

Unfortunately, I did not save a picture of the before version.  It was quite different though.



The focal bead was made by Ingrid Mueller.  I complimented the focal with African hand painted glass, red mala bone beads, dyed turquoise bone, and fire polished picasso Czech beads wrapped to my hammered copper collar.








Before: 













After redesign.  The focal was made by Cindy Doleazal.  I love the simplicity of her stick figures of children playing with their dog in the sunshine.  I used the same cube glass beads, and added peanut or farfal beads, hand made paper beads by Dee Rick, a hand made bird bead, again by Cindy, and a dragon vein jade bead.  I also added a bit of sari silk to frame the top of the pendant.













Better or worse?

Love the look of these, Jean :) I'm a big fan of Ingrid's beads, too!

I like the new length - it's got more "kick" to it with the added green silk (?).
