Silver Wings

While we were on our trip to Bike Week in the Black Hills of South Dakota, I saw a woman wearing a necklace that looked much like this one. I tried to be inconspicuous as I stared at her, ummmm, chest area, to see how I could make a similar necklace.  This is what I came up with. Turquoise beeds, small silver toned beads, and, of course, silver wings.

I’m going to start working on these beaded yellow and black Kumihimo bracelets for M-I-Z-Z-O-U as soon as I can. I’ve got the materials to make three. I’m not sure if I’m going to do them all in black and yellow spirals or if I am going to do one mostly yellow with a little black, one mostly black with a little yellow and one black and yellow spiral. I’m thinking maybe two spirals and one yellow with black. Hmmm.
