Custom Order
« on: June 20, 2016, 12:18:26 AM »

This is a work in progress Custom Order piece for my friend Mia Benson (Spiritbearbeads).

Fake Amber cabs, and some kind of Lace agate or Onyx.  I'm thinking it's an onyx/travertine kind of stone.  Mia would know the stone's true Identity since she bought the cabs!
Still have some edge embellishment and fringe to do along with earrings...

Latest update taken on my kitchen countertop as it's blowing dust outside and after 11PM at night, so natural light is out.  I will take some good pictures once the whole ensemble is done.
Necklace chain is vinyl airline tubing for aquariums covered in silk ribbon and Picasso finish seed beads.

Very nice!
How do you attach the cones on the ends - glue?
I'm thinking about something similar or some crimped ends for kumihimo so would welcome your suggestions

What I did is the cording - which is aquarium tubing, has tigertail wire running through it.  That tigertail wire is crimped on either end to form a loop.  I threaded bronze wire through each loop and then fed the bronze wire through the cones and did a wrapped loop to finish each end off.  For added security as the tubing went into the cone I added a couple drops of E6000.
