I have had the necklace finished for over a year now and it just did not seem right. Originally I strung it on flexible wire. It was okay but I wasn't happy with it. This week I finally sat down with it. After staring at the necklace for a long time I finally worked up the nerve to cut the wire and start over. This time I used black cording. It was stretchy enough to pull on it while I tightened it down and then the "ugly" ends slid right back inside the beaded tubes. Yahoo! I'ts nice and snug and much nicer to the touch than the original.
If you have time, go check it out. Just click on either picture. I wish I could keep it, but it really needs to find a better home. One with a pretty neck to really show it off!
