Above is the "Berkley Filigree" necklace, which was a design I came up to show people what to do with the small porcelain link pairs that I have at the market. These seem to confuse non-beaders, so I need to make more samples. I made a bracelet yesterday and would like to do a pair of earrings, too. This necklace also makes good use of some of the larger pieces of filigree that I have collected over the years, and is one of the few pieces in my booth that uses my porcelain as an accent instead of a focal.
