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.
The way you beaded is is really nice!! Colors you chose are close to each other, well done!!
I guess it would be perfect for a long dress full of ethnic flavor!! :)
Cheer ourselves up to CREATE with BEADS! Cheer up ~~~
I love it, Karin! It brings some warm sunshine into my cold, miserable existence! Right now, it's about 25°F. The wind chill makes it about 12°! I need a nice, warm tropical island, waaaaaaah!
Very pretty - love the design and colors!
Awesome necklace ! Love the colors.
i just adored this piece in the gallery. It is wonderful and i love the way you show it as well on the boat!
May the beads be with you!
It looks very beautiful, but I want to know what it is used for. Is it a bracelet or just a decoration for this big object. :D

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.
