Peacock



Here is a piece I have decided to call Peacock. 
Whilst making the necklace I kept thinking of the word Peacock because of the colours chosen 
and the splay formed with the centre design.

This design really came about by accident. I was experimenting trying to create one thing and realised it wasn't working then my internal voices said - "keep playing with this" - so I continued and 
I'm very glad I did.

On the left you see the front of the necklace with the copper coloured rivoli showing. 
On the right the "back" of the rivoli, also attractive, enables the necklace to be worn both sides. 
There is a part of me that prefers the back to the front.

In creating this I have learnt new directions and I am very keen to start another. 
The second one will be a lot easier as you already know what you are doing. 

I really love experimenting but sometimes you struggle to get that last thread through those 
already full of thread seed beads .
