Beads With Hats?
I have several different styles that I've collected over the years - mostly bali style sterling silver, but whenever I go to use them, they always end up looking strange to me.
Like my beads are wearing little hats. Hats that don't fit right.
So, like most of my recent projects, I decided to tackle multiple demons with one projects - the problem of how to use bead caps and have them look good AND how to make bead caps with a wire spiral.
The picture of the carnelian bead is from a very old project of mine - a simple pair of earrings. The individual components are all pretty - but together - ugh!
