I had just been wondering what to do with these gorgeous turquoise beads I picked up at a bead show a while back when I stumbled across this pin. As much as I loved the original, I didn’t want to buy a bunch of new materials, so I decided to use what I had on hand and drew my inspiration from this design.
- turquoise beads
- silver beads (I have no idea where these came from, but I found them lying around)
- thread and ribbon (I really like the matching ribbon in the original, but in the interest of not buying something new, I chose a neutral ivory. Plus, I'd imagine that might be a hard color to match)
- crimp beads (never used these before, but I'd picked them up at the same bead show a while back
- Nothing! Success! I made a great new necklace and a small dent in my stash.
