A tassel of beads topped by a ceramic bird bead I made with dangles featuring Elaine Ray beads and gimp.

It’s hanging off that brass neck wire I love to use and reuse.

Sometimes, simple is better. This necklace is made with a lovely handmade bead, a clasp, some chain. That’s it. I had intended to do a lot more with it but then I never added the other beads, or ribbon strand, or the charms. It just seemed finished.

I never really feel 100% confident in simplicity. Is it finished, or am I just lazy? Does the design really feel complete or do I just want to move on to the next thing? Have I achieved balance or just lost interest?
