I just want to share one of behind the making story of my project. It's a special request from one of my good friend. I named them "Amonita Red", consist of a set of necklace and bracelet in red shade color. Here is the picture,
Photo 1. Those are the materials.
The main materials are Gudo beads and RED natural "stone" beads (frankly I don;t now exactly the name of those red beads, and forgot to ask when I bought it on Tjikini Craft Day few months ago :D). For the findings, i use metal spacer, metal toggle, and change the chain into monel wire.
Photo 2 - 3. Those are my plan for necklace and bracelet.
For the necklace, i want to make a simple yet classic style with red focal beads accompanied by the Gudo beads. For the bracelet, i just follow the necklace's way, with the same material.
Photo 4 - 5. Those are the final result of necklace.
In the end, I change my mind :D - I make two layers necklace, with detachable second layer. Photo 4 is first alternative, with 2 layers beads, more rich and festive style. Photo 5 is the second alternative, with detached second layer, turn the necklace into more simple yet chic style.
This final result becomes much different than the one i planned previously. I think, the final idea makes the looks of necklace becomes more dynamic and impressive, a bit different compare with ordinary necklaces.
Photo 6 is the final result of the bracelet.
As my previous plan, the composition merely the same. I purposely put the toggle near the focal beads to add an accent into the bracelet.
The best part is, my friend accept my design without any revision and love it !
