I used to do a lot of beadwork. I still love it, but seems like knitting has taken over my life lately. But back in the days when I was beading, this is the kind of thing I used to make. This is one of my first necklaces. I call it “Under The Sea”.
The original pattern, designed by my friend Linda C. Smith, was very different. I started out with the part in the middle, and then kinda took off and made up my own design.
