Iron Challenge Necklace

Iron Bead Challenge
November 2007

The diverse selective of beads were the primary inspiration for this project. My goal was to complete the project with all the beads provided, while adding only a few focal elements. All the beads in the challenge kit were used, except for one wooden bead, while adding only three other elements to construct the design.
Jade focal beads, Glass beads, wooden beads, glass seed beads, copper clasp, copper chain, and copper wire wrapping
Necklace length: 24"
Focal element length: 3"
