This was a commission for a customer. She asked for multi-strand and the first I made was too pink for her tastes. Luckily I sold it to someone else and had another go. This time I took the beads to her and had her ‘sign off’ on the colours. The main design requirement was to let the light shine through in a myriad of colours. I chose crystals and translucent glass beads to give this effect and braided the neck piece with black kumihimo cord. The clasp is hand forged. Long story short – she loved this one!
