of the sea.
This is my very special piece.
I worked on this from May 2000 till September 2001. Again, in the summer months I spent little time on it. This time I used very small beads, this was difficult, especially while sliding beads along the ring - sometimes they got stuck and were liable to break. The first part, (getting the beads into position) I managed to do myself; when the beads had to go onto the ring my husband helped.
There are a lot of colours in this piece, the most difficult was the gold and silver thread, this curls up so easily that it makes it almost impossible to get in threaded.
