A sneak peek!

I didn't get enough good pictures of this necklace to list it on Etsy yet, so here's just a little teaser. I actually beaded it quite some time ago and have just had abysmal luck getting decent pictures. I think that I have to go back to doing photography in the game room. The dining room just doesn't cut it.

Anyway, this is an awesome necklace that I made with the idea that it would be perfect for a Tribal belly dancer like me, except one whose favorite color is blue instead of green. Or even one who has a gorgeous black and blue outfit that needs the perfect necklace. There are three of those fan-shaped motifs. I saw them at gem show and simply had to have them. The blue is so vibrant!

True story: with the exception of the earrings that coordinate with this necklace, everything that I've made since gem show has involved components that I purchased at the gem show.

Steampunk Cameo Necklace: 6mm brass Swarovski pearls that I took home from work, and 3mm bronze firepolished beads from Gem Mall.
This necklace: The fan pendants.
A brass necklace: Brass filigree focal and brass chain.
Moonlit Seductress: The size 15 seed beads and the ribbon.
Her Airship Sailed Through Time: The gold iris seed beads and the toggle clasp.

And I'll probably continue this trend with my 2010 BFAC project, which will involve a dichro cab that I bought at the show.

Speaking of BFAC, my necklace went for over $150! Yippy! Be sure to check out this week's auctions, too, there's some great items.
