Necklace from Takako Samejima Book

Post by karinlouise on Tue 30 Mar 2010 - 23:51

This is the necklace I originally made in January from the book my Mum had got me for Christmas. But it flopped as I hadn't used the right thread. I'm ashamed to say I couldn't be bothered going back to it as it had annoyed me so much not getting it right Mr Green

Anyway, now all my card stuff is out of the way for a few days I decided to have another go with filament.

I'm very pleased with it and it looks lovely on.

Well done for getting it right, Karin.
What's filament...specifically I mean?

That's a hard thing to set your mind to, how many of us have part done projects that need undoing or even just finishing. Good work, esp with the name of the book, ooer. Very pretty necklace.

Not sure I understand what you mean hun. The 'thread' I used says on the reel

Illusion Cord, Monofilament .010 in. From Beadsmith

Its very similar to fishing line but a lot thinner.

Illusion Cord is what I wanted. Mr Green Filament covers so many things, hun.
