This is a small study of the creative process. This necklace took about 5 hours to make, give or take. It was important to assemble the materials first. Working with color is an endless learning curve, but there is so much joy in it.
Here is a variety of seed beads, (Tohos) Swarovski crystals and lucite flowers.
For this necklace it was best to start with the larger beads, as they are the focal point.
Notice how the workspace gets messier as the work progresses :)
Checking for drape and composition. Necklace does not seem quite right yet.
I decided to stop here. Although I could have spent another hour on it, but I was sleepy!
