I’m not actually a big fan of orange, but it’s growing on me. Since Tangerine Tango IS this year’s color, it seemed a good idea to give it a try.
There something about the lush look of all these beads clusters that I love.
It’s full and rich and funky. Yet, having the other two chain strands, empty, seems to balance it out and keep it elegant.
All the bead wire wrapping is time consuming, but other than that it’s not a complicate necklace to make. (Hooray for messy wraps!)
