After a hefty struggle I managed to crochet with beads! It's like with peyote: the beginning is hard and then it's Zen afterwards. I love the effect.

I wanted a collar that went all around but the crocheted (is that a word?) cord couldn't carry the weight of the disky part. So I had to find a solution to this problem. I made square stitch bands that now carry the weight of both cords seperately.

Another new thing to me are the metal rings. I had to use them because the disks wouldn't hang nicely with beaded ropes. So here it is.

Greetings from SeaBeads.

I love this necklace it is a lovely piece of jewellery that has an ethnic feel with the design

I like how you have added the discs with the jump rings and I am sure that when you wear this you are going to get lots of nice comments.

I also like the way you have displayed your jewellery for the photograph.

I love it, Karin!  It brings some warm sunshine into my cold, miserable existence!Sad  Right now, it's about 25°F.  The wind chill makes it about 12°!  I need a nice, warm tropical island, waaaaaaah!Crying

It looks very beautiful, but I want to know what it is used for.

I believe it's a necklace -- the 'object' is being used to 'showcase' her necklace (what stores do to show their products) and very well done, too.
