Free Tip Friday: Green Girl + Leather + Chain = a necklace classic!

Today on Free Tip Friday, I went way back int the archives and created a piece based on my "Sundance Choker" class from The Bead Shop days. This necklace had a little bit of everything... some chain, some beads, leather, charms and a lot of imagination!


Boho Beauty by Kate Richbourg
 Here is a list of the materials and tools I used in the project:

Chain
Little Lentil- Antique Silver
Two Lanterns- Vintage Silver
Circle Back- Antique Copper 

Leather
Distressed Denim- 1.0mm Indian
Olive Drab- 1.5mm Indian

C-Lon
Sage - Regular C-Lon


Tools
Xuron Thread & Cord Scissor

Maxi- Shear Flush Wire Cutter

The idea behind a project like this is to flex that creativity muscle!


In the video, I go over how I chose my bead palette and the "winding path" that I take to come up with this final design.


There are a lot of great tips & tricks to mix it up and create your own Boho Beauty!


I am really pleased with the final result.
