Crystal Necklace

Snow Flake Necklace
A Swarovski crystal necklace I made for an Employee Appreciation dinner I'm attending next month. Our theme is 'Winter Wonderland' and the pattern is called 'Spring Snowflakes,' although I think it looks more like ice crystals than snowflakes. The pattern came from "Stitch Workshop: Right-Angle Weave" by Bead & Button magazine. I did make an error in the pattern, but since I did it consistantly, it doesn't show and doesn't really affect it that much...other than I know and want to smack myself LOL! I still need to make the earrings. The beads are 3mm silver metal rounds, 4 & 6mm Swarovksi Crystal AB bicones, strung on 6lb test Fireline.

That's really pretty! I also think it looks more like ice crystals but I think it still fits the theme perfectly.

This is lovely. Can you tell me what issue of Bead & Button the pattern is in? I'm really liking it a lot.

Sorry I don't know the original issue...I got it from a book where they had collected a group of crystal projects. The book title is in the post and it was still available on Amazon last time I looked.

Sorry, what's the title of the book? Stitch workshop? Your work is inspiring. :) I want to try it myself.

Thank you, by the way, for the information. And for sharing such an inspiring piece.
