Spiral rope, a beautiful art-glass bead, and several lengths of chain harmonize nicely.
I love the colors in the 2012 Bead&Button Show commemorative bead
by Michael Barley.
The aster-like designs in the bead inspired me to create this
asymmetrical necklace. I incorporated several lengths of chain with
varying link sizes to offset the weight of the bead and keep the bead
slightly off center.
