the trade bead necklace.

As mentioned yesterday, I picked up a beautiful strand of vintage beads on our road trip and it inspired me to create something similar of my own. Strung on a soft white leather cord, the clear and lilac glass mimic the blue and white Venetian trade bead pattern with adjoining skunk bead in the middle.
I love the organic quality produced by working fast with bead mandrels.
Each bead has it's own special shape and hangs differently than the next.
