Snow Queen

I finally listed my EBW December challenge piece!  It's been sitting around finished for quite some time now, but between school and trying to find a dark background for pictures, I didn't get it listed 'till just now.  

So here it is, in all its icy glory, a choker fit for a Snow Queen!  

I used a variety of clear, silver lined, and opaque white beads, along with three larger foil-lined clear glass beads as centerpieces for three netted icy flowers.  Hanging from each flower is a small section of tubular herringbone, with coraling beneath that to create icicles.  In between the flowers are strips of freeform netting.  All this was hung from memory wire strung with silver lined beads.  You can find this necklace listed here.

ps..  the black background is the cover of one of my sketchbooks.  

Also, this past week I was featured in a treasury created by Ileana of enchantedbeads.  I didn't manage to get a screenshot of it, but thanks to Ileana anyways!  Check out her shop for some beautiful beadwoven brooches and more!
