New Beaded Beads Necklace

I decided to design something new with sharp triangle beads. At first, I was trying to make a flat design (without much success), but somehow it evolved into these textured, self-supporting beaded beads...

I made one version of the beads with Swarovski crystals and combined them in this bold plum necklace. The other version, is a longer bead embellished with smaller triangles and used as a focal in the blue/pink necklace.


  1. Really love the burgundy one. Stunning!

    I do hope,You are fine:-)
    Not many seed beads You have used this time - lol :-)
    The jewels look very...hmmm...ascetic,but at the same time very elegant.
    I can say,I discovered triangle 'Miyuki' beads not so long ago.They are giving fine effect,because in the stitch,they put themselves in their own regular sequences,creating a fine texture.
    My husband had mistaken,when I made the last order in the 'Fire Mountain' webshop and ordered the half kilo of 'honey rainbow' ones.It's a little too much,but I like them and I'd have to think,how to use them properly :-)

  3. Thank you all very much! :)

    Halinka, half a kilo IS really a lot, but as you said, these beads add so much texture to a beawork, so I'm sure you will find a way to use them (maybe wide cuff bracelet?)

  4. Elegant and simple. Great harmony of elements. Splendid work.

  5. Thank you, Perladora and Marsha for your nice comments! :)
