It all started with some beautiful Noro Lily yarn in cotton and silk that self-striped in rich tones of forest and olive green, orange, periwinkle, and fuchsia. I made three knitted tubes (I-cords): two short tubes that are just over 2" long and one long tube that is over 12" long. I coaxed these tubes on to a 17" length of stainless steel memory wire. I then placed half-inch long beaded beads (in size 8 matte cobalt blue seed beads) on either side of the long tube and used size 6 seed beads as stoppers behind the shorter tubes.
I could have stopped there and had a fun, simple choker. But it's not in my nature to just stop there, ever. I used peyote stitch and some more matte cobalt blue Japense seed beads, this time size 6, to create a beaded bead that is just under 2" long. It makes a striking focal point for a piece of fiber jewelry that is rich in texture and color.
This choker will be shipped in an elegant gift box using First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. You can upgrade to Priority Mail for $3 by leaving a request in the "Message for Seller" of the purchase order; wait for an amended invoice.
