Coral necklace

There are a few coral outfits appearing in my wardrobe and I decided I needed a different style of necklace for them, so I headed back to Zilchbeads and found another inspiring spiral necklace using long Magatama 4x7mm beads, together with size 8 and 11 seed beads.

The beads are quite cute, and I was told that one way they looked like a “boot” and the other way a “shoe” so when stringing you have to make sure that they are all facing the same way.  I chose the “shoe” orientation,

and I had fun making the earrings using both orientations,

and here is the full set!

They are getting quite a bit of wear this summer with my cold shoulder top and my watermelon frilled top.

  1. Can see you getting a lot of wear from this lovely necklace. I always admire how you complete an outfit you've sewn by designing the perfect accessories. These beads are so unusual and so very pretty.
