Today's From The Vault is the very first beadworked necklace I completed waaaaaaaaay back in the day. I think I might have been either in my first year of college, or possibly still in high school. This was back in the day before 11/0's, 15/0's, WAY before delicas, before gemstones and crystals.
Friends, this is Stormy Night
It is peyote stitch and tubular netting in silver lined blue and black 10/0's, or whatever the craft store baggies of beads are. They are marketed as 10/0's now. There are some silverlined gold beads scattered throughout, and the focal is a 1" round mirror.
I'm not sure what the bead caps are, but they are superglued in place, and are a gold metal. I was so proud when I finished it.
What was your first beadworked piece? Can you see similarities between that piece and your most recent? Is your white thread showing (mine totally is!)
