Project Map

Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Drea Carbone

Drea has had her eye on these Green Girl Studios toggle clasps--a beadshop.com exclusive!--for a while now. Her only plan? Surround it with red. As she collected red beads over the months, her vision became clear: string, Janice-style! A slightly more reserved Zen of Stringing than the norm, the color does the talking in this piece. Bold and bright, chock full of Czech Glass, and a piece you can customize to your heart's content. Wear it with the clasp in front, off to the side, or at the back. Add a tassel--or don't! Add more colors, or keep it red. This is a piece to string up while watching your favorite show and then wear out to your favorite restaurant.

A Note on Ingredients: This really is a you-do-you project. Drea selected a variety of red hues, shapes, and sizes. She wanted a little bit of everything! It's a good idea to have a variety so your piece doesn't look overly repetitive or stale, there's always something else to look at...all while being cohesive.

Drea also made a detachable tassel. She's not sold on it, join us for the live and give us the thumbs up or down...in case you're into it, ingredients for it are Peridot Fine C-Lon, Moss Green Mercury Melons, and 4mm Artichoke Picasso.

Drea's finished necklace measures 17", be sure to make yours long enough to work for YOU!
