This is one of the latest beaded pieces I finished. It is heavy - two layers thick - and very comfortable to wear. The main beads are size 11 Toho rounds with size 15 silver one-cut charlottes, some size 15 shiny Tohos, and 3mm sugar plum magatama drops. The piece is strung on Kevlar thread, which I really enjoyed using. I'm working on another piece now and am using Nymo with Thread Heaven and still having trouble with tangles no matter how many times I let the needle spin. I still need to get better photos, but this is a start. This pattern is Layered Loops from the February 2010 Bead & Button magazine and was designed by Smadar Grossman of Modi'in, Israel (smadarstreasure.blogspot.com).
