Murphy's Law... Again...

Arrrrgggghhhhhhhhh... You'd think after all these years and doing this so many times I'd learn to check that no extra beads snuck in BEFORE the final crimp. But neeeeooooooooosirreebob. Did it again.

Another game of spot the mistake.




At least this time I didn't have to start over. I was able to crush that pesky extra bead that somehow magically appeared after I'd covered the final crimp bead.




The technical info: mossy green vintage Venetian seed beads, shell bird beads & a pewter bird pendant. $59 plus shipping, email me for availability and exact size. This one is about 20 inches long, and the pendant will add about an inch.

Reminder: GEM EXPO -- 13, 14 & 15 MARCH -- Hyatt Regency Hotel, King Street, Toronto -- click on the link to sign up to get your admission discount! I will have lots of these bird beads with me, as well as handmade glass, old and new chevrons, Roman glass and pewter pendants and skulls. And turquoise -- lots of turquoise.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous necklace you have here! I love the peaceful, serene feeling the cute little birds share.
Glad you were able to get rid of that extra bead without having to tear the piece apart - much more rewarding that way.
Craftedly Yours,
