Beadwork Alternate Colorway Information for Agnieszka Watts’s Forest Whisper Necklace

Here at Beadwork, we know that beaders love options — which is why we always ask our contributors for alternate colorways of their projects. Unfortunately, we don’t always have room to list all the materials for some of the extra pieces we show in the magazine. (Space can sometimes be very tight in a print publication!) Agnieszka Watts’s June/July 2017 Beadwork project is one such case.

Agnieszka Watts’s Forest Whisper Necklace

Agnieszka created three gorgeous colorways of her Forest Whisper Necklace for June/July 2017 Beadwork. We only had space to provide the materials list for the main necklace. This gorgeous piece includes a floral ceramic focal bezeled with bead embroidery using bronze and orange pressed-glass rounds and red/orange seed beads.

The earring variation of this necklace uses smaller floral ceramic focals, bezeled with the same orange pressed-glass rounds and red/orange seed beads.
