Anne Choi Bead Inspired Necklace

I love Anne Choi beads and have bought a few in the last year or two. However, I've never used one until now. This particular bead wanted to be a pendant and after getting some gorgeous hand-dyed silk ribbon from Heidi of Jamn Glass, I took a few of my orphan lampwork beads that I used beautiful high silver content glass that looks like mother of pearl at certain angles and 3 different colors of swarovski bicone crystals and made this necklace. I saw my friend Lisa Atchison of Touch of Glass Designs make a coiled clasp like this one and I loved the it so much I borrowed the idea. Because of that coil, the necklace is adjustable to just about any length and you don't have to tie and untie over and over. Then there are two coordinating beads on the each end of the ribbon for a little sassiness. I think those beads dangling in the back looks totally hot. I will defintely be making more of these!

Thanks Robin! I bought some ribbon a long time ago and never used it. Now I have all kinds of things I want to make with it.

Hi Andrew! Thanks for visiting. Anne makes the most amazing beads. I have several and love them so much that I want to make sure whatever design I create with them does them some kind of justice. So, I've used just this one bead out of my collection. I do have plans to use the one that says "A room without books is like a body without a soul" for a dear friend of mine that loves to read as much as I do. I keep picking up the bead and trying various configurations and haven't hit it yet. It will happen when it's supposed to.
