Making your bead stringing designs unique - part two

Copper and Bone necklace
Unusual material that you don't see in this combination everyday



To recap, here are the principles that I suggest you think about as you seek to make your stringing designs unique enough to stand out from the crowd.  Don't try to cram all of these ideas into one piece.  Yikes!

Make your own components or beads
Work with asymmetrical designs
Use multiple strands
Develop a recognizable style
Use unusual materials
Choose daring color combinations


The links will all lead you to tutorials, but please don't feel that you much duplicate these pieces exactly...that's exactly contrary to the point!

Rock Candy
I've fulfilled the principle of making my own beads in this necklace



Flapper
A classic asymmetrical design



Ocean Lariat
 Multiple strands



Blow a Fuse
A bold color combination, and kind of unusual materials as well!

Love them all, Cyndi... the fuses are a great example of seeing art in the mundane!
