When I first saw the new Terra Intensive beads from Preciosa I remarked that the beads were little tiny jewels. They look absolutely beautiful by themselves.
Lena Gillespie was one of the first designers to work with the beads and this memory wire bracelet she designed featured a pretty dangle with matching beads.
I decided to make some straight dangles also. Using one 10/0 bead as a stopper on my head pin, I added the bigger beads to my head pin in single colours. I counted the beads so I could create a cascading effect.
I used a longer head pin and cut them shorter as needed. I also set up my stringing wire and added one EZ Crip to keep my project together.
I could not decide if I wanted a bead spacer or not. I tried them strung first with the Terra Intensive rose beads as spacers.
It looked pretty, but it did not give me the finished look I wanted.
So I restrung them like this. A second EZ Crimp finished the stringing wire end.
Now I had a pendant really showcasing the colors of the Terra Intensive bead collection.
