Marti Conrad. When she shared the photo of these new fish pendents, I knew I just had to have at least one of them. With this project, I wanted to spend more time on texture of the collar. I had a base all beaded out and then enjoyed adding little loops between the size 11 black seed beads. To match the colors in the pendent, I also got out what few remaining sequins I had bought on my trip to NYC several years ago. When I finished the fringe, it didn't look complete to me, so I added another layer of smaller net type fringe to complete. With my other collars, I had questioned myself about how to add a clasp. I had wonderful suggestions, and someone mentioned those tube closing. I have several for future square stitch projects that I bought at 1 Stop, and after pulling the bag out and looking at it, I was convinced it would work well. But I wasn't certain until I actually wore it for a day. It feels really great on the back of the neck, and is so easy to fasten. Double plus on this account.
