Illusion set.

Fed up with using silver plated findings all the time I bought some gold plated ones and some gold-tone tigertail wire to make this necklace and bracelet set for myself.
 I've used variagated large blue seed beads with gold plated crimp beads to make the spacing I needed for the necklace.


I used a double strand for the bracelet and put blue beads on each and held them in clusters by threading on crimp beads and putting both wires through.
This is something I will enjoy wearing in the summer as it's very light. While out shopping I popped into the library and found a book on ornamental knots for jewellery, so watch this space it has some very interesting things in it.

Really pretty set Sue! I need more practice with crimp beads, mine usually look a bit chewed!
