GitcheGumee Graduated Pearl Necklace – Wire Working Techniques

Whatdoyamean, GitcheGumee?! LOL!
This design is a refresh of a Nealay Patel original design for Now That’s a Jig! titled GitcheGumee Necklace where Nealay put me in charge of the naming! The shapes reminded me of arrowheads and summer-camp [at least what my lack of experience understands summer-camp to mean not having gone myself]. This is a fun refresh ‘cause as Nealay designed with paracord for a fun and sporty look, you can not only embellish the triangular elements with any bead 10mm and above, but string the Slides onto thick cording, rubber, leather, fiber/hemp or (for a super-fun and summery vibe) a silk neck-scarf, separating the elements with coordinating beads or knots into a totally-you design! – Brenda Schweder
