(See previous post for a pic of the dress.)
On beauty boards, the expression would be as follows: *head explodes*. That's what happens when you have too many choices or too much information to process. :)
I'd like to try my hand at making an illusion necklace. Back when I was starting out, I did make a couple, but that was before I had much idea what materials to use. Also the beads I used were too heavy...the virtue of an illusion necklace I would suppose lies in choosing lightweight beads.
I've seen a really nice one with several strands, using amethyst beads. For this one I'm thinking small pearls, or even a mix of pearls and crystals. Not sure what to use for the "string" part. I have regular and bronze Soft Flex on hand but nothing else that falls into that category.
A few things I'll try to photograph tomorrow...I didn't make them but think the designs are interesting and might be inspiring. They're Middle Eastern style necklaces and a couple of components.
