I’m quite pleased with this necklace. The beads selected by Beki from Out on a Whim are beautiful, and were easy to use. My twisted right angle weave stitch variant makes a lovely, flexible rope, with the drop beads adding texture. The pendant and bar of the clasp create strong horizontal lines to contrast with twisting texture of the rope.
Beading for a Cure combines a beading challenge and a competition on an annual basis to raise money for the National Colorectal Cancer Research Association, in memory of beader Layne Shilling. Everyone purchases the same kit of beads (I believe 75 kits were sold this year), and we all must use at least one of each bead, and may only add one additional bead.
Auctions begin in March 2011. I will post again when the auctions begin!
