I wanted to kick it up a notch and, designed a necklace with black leather that is in the Step by Step Wire Oct/Nov 2011 issue.
Recently I ordered some metallic leather from Leather Cord USA! It was hard to choose but...I will obtain more colors!
It just happened that the color theme group on Facebook opted for blueberry and grape for this weeks challenge. Go figure I ordered "Berry Metallic" cord!
The 2mm leather is captured with 18 gauge wire...woven together with 26 gauge.
Juicy amethyst briolettes are framed with sterling silver chain. Swarovski crystals in various shades of purple pull in additional bling!
