I tinkered with various ways of making a whole piece of jewelry from the dagger beads; the were so different that I couldn't just string them. I thought of copper wire chain and that didn't appeal to me either. Finally I visited the fiber gals in Loveland at the Loveland Arts Studio and found what I was looking for...recycled silk sari ribbon. It lent just the roughness I was looking for and still the rich dark color to complement the almost oil-slick quality of the beads.The jump rings are wire that I made into rings and patinated, finishing with a sealing finish. The clasp is bracketed by brass cones; the hook is one of my own hand made hooks. After a short test run I will be putting this up for sale on my etsy shop.
