Year of Jewelry 2013, Week 4, Not From the Mall


I think I will call this:  Onyx Dream

I attempted to follow the tutorial by Anneta Valious of My Lovely Beads, but once I got started it was like working on free form peyote!  I found soutache to be very relaxing.  My first attempt was to be a pair of earrings, but I found working with two cord colors problematic.  But only because I hate changing threads every time the cord turned a different color on a turn (see pic below).  Overall, I enjoyed working with a single color and will definitely make other things with soutache.



To the UFO drawer!
