Remember the unfinished piece from last week's Bead soup reveal? I asked all you lovely readers to come up with suggestions on how to finish this piece. Out of all the ideas, I'd pick one, finish the piece and give to the beader who's idea I incorporated.
Quite frankly this piece proved to be very difficult to finish and I would not be exaggerating one bit if I told you I took it apart five or six times. In the end the idea I came closest to using was one recommended by Love, Yesterdays
I would turn the unfinished piece into a bracelet. Half the bracelet is the beadweaving piece, the other half the bracelet is the wire only with wired beads to jangle like a charm bracelet. or If the bead weaving section is too long, make a double ring bracelet that clasps together as one...one ring around being the beadweaving part, the other ring around being the charm like section.Instead of wire I stayed with the original chain, doubled it up and used some bronze mother of pearl charms.
I finished the piece with some metal spacers
and tiny turquoise discs
I will be posting this in the mail next week to Love, Yesterdays hoping she loves my interpretation of her idea.
