I have been busy making beaded beads as part of larger necklaces in my ongoing play with the necklace as a wearable art gallery. Here are a few images of pieces I've worked on in the past week. Each beaded bead is sculptural peyote, in Czech and/or Japanese seed beads. I'm using bead shop beads as filler to complement the beaded beads.
The centerpiece is something I received way back when we first opened our shop. His color went just right with the greens in the ovals.
These are the shells and coral I have so far for my cabinet of curiosities necklace. Next up, sea urchins.
