Sorry for the lack of recent posts- struck down by unpleasant virus - I have been a very unhappy camper, but finally feeling better. I made this multi-strand necklace with jasper beads I was given by one of the lovely girls on beadingforum.com.au. I love the earthy tones, so I used some sweet brass birds, and brass chain to keep the warm tones. The construction went through multiple stages - every time I put it on, the chains would roll and tangle. Eventually, I solved the problem by using little chandelier components to attach the strands.
