final piece 1/3

The finished project from this post here. A nugget of blush agate, beaded with seed beads and backed onto leather, with Swarovski crystals and a large Chinese crystal clasp.
I’m pleased with this piece – I hadn’t done that large a piece of peyote stitch before and it worked well. However, I didn’t use Nymo and my next piece, I will have to: this stretched slightly because of the thread and ended up being a little big for me. I also made a beaded clasp for the first time, and just didn’t like it at all. Although it fits in aesthetically, it just doesn’t work properly! I might try a hammered toggle for next time. But the colours and mix of semi precious, crystal and seed beads look fabulous – very regal and rich.
