Bead Table Wednesday--Work in Progress
I'm late again on Bead Table Wednesday but there you go. It's been that kind of day. I started this piece a while back, set it aside, then dug it out again.
This is the first piece where I've used this brass wire. It's a little stiffer than the sterling or copper I usually work with, but I like the antique color. Since I'm using a less expensive wire I experimented with some fatter wraps on the links. It's also one of the few pieces I've done that has some asymmetry. I really like asymmetrical necklaces but I never know how to go about doing one. I'm going to try making a clasp for it out of one of the brass wires with the balled ends from last week's Bead Table Wednesday.
Looking at it in this photo the donut looks a little plain. It's a lot better looking in person, happily. I definitely need to stop taking jewelry photos with the cell phone.
