Turquoise Treasure on Leather
My friend gave me a bead that she got from a music festival over the summer and asked me to do something with it. I revisited the wrapped wire frame design that has figured prominently in my previous work.
I created seven loops to attach the spike details. All of the wire and findings are sterling silver. I really rather like this side of the piece as one can see the carved detail of the bead more clearly as it is not obscured by the coloring of the stone.
I opted to use a graceful "S" clasp design to add more interest to the back. I can't wait for her to see what I have done with her bead!
