I started with a B&W pattern by KFS that I found on Pinterest:
I started with the black and white and then decided to add a pop of teal metallic beads
I really love the end result and I added a simple beaded toggle clasp
This shot is more true to the real color of the teal beads
Now I must digress for a moment, I used some Toho cylinder beads that I bought (on sale) from A.C. Moore. However, even though I have a nice selection of these beads, I have never used them and I hate them. They are so wonky and inconsistent and I had a hard time continuing this piece because the beads were just not uniform. I am used to beading with Miyuki delica beads and truly I am spoiled by the exact nature of delicas. As usual, you get what you pay for, and I will never complain about the price of delicas again because it is obvious that Miyuki delicas trump Toho cylinder beads.
(Note: I am just referencing Toho cylinder beads, Toho seed beads are still #1 in my book)
