Beadwork - Cascading Swag Refined Samples

I love this design. It is a versatile necklace. The first time I did this necklace was in a class with Maria Rypan using all size 10 seed beads. I did a variation of the design with longer swags that overlapped. Maria then did a variation using sizes 8 and 6 seed beads. Now she has a new variation with size 10 and 8 seed beads.


I did this first sample a while back but Maria did not have it kitted up for sale yet. It is now available (We have it at the Toronto Bead Society Bead Fair this weekend). She then wanted a colour combination to tie into the upcoming Mysteries of Ancient Ukraine: The Remarkable Trypillian Culture (5400-2700 B.C.) exhibit at the ROM. Maria has a series of necklaces entitled the Trypillian Spirit Collection which will be sold at the ROM gift shop. The Trypillian variation use black and bronze beads.
