......check out this wonderful old beaded necklace I'm thinking of selling at the local thrift shop.........it's so unusual and since I've been beading for one year now, I can REALLY appreciate the time and work that went into making it! The beads are black glass seed beads and the whole piece is 28 inches around.
These thin metal "leaves" are attached to leaf shaped wooden pieces underneath........and there are little holes bored thru the wooden underside for the beading needle/thread to pass through when it was strung! I forgot how many separate strands there are, but it's more than 20.......hmmmm.
I may not be able to get rid of it just yet........I wish a beading person would want it; then I'd know it had a really GOOD home!!!
ATTENTION: you beaders or crafters out there who live near a Dollar Tree store: they have Blue Moon beads in little pkgs. for sale right now!
Needless to say, I got a bunch of colors/shapes today!
