The need to bead

I can't believe this year is the 25th anniversary of the film, Top Gun!  The line from that film that sticks with me is, "I feel the need...the need for speed."

After spending day after day packing and trying to make decisions what to keep and what to pitch, my brain went into overdrive and I needed to take a break.  Then the October/November issue of Beadwork magazine arrived, and I FELT THE NEED TO BEAD!

I fell in love with the necklace on the cover.  But unfortunately, I didn't have all of the necessary beads to make it; so I did some practice working on the necklace strands and came up with this:

You'll have to click on the image to enlarge it and see the detail to see what's going on here.  The strands were made with the new tila beads that are so popular at the moment.  This necklace lies nice and flat on the neck.

Now I'm eager to make the original necklace; so I guess it's back to packing until I need another break.
