Last week I shared a process photo of my Sea Grass pendant in this post. The fringe is nice and stiff and sticks out in an arch around the lower half of the beaded circle. I was inspired by the wonderful cultured sea glass shards sent to me by ZnetShows (it's been fun watching them set up their booth at Tuscon) and a photo of Button Sedge from the book Archipelageo: Portraits of Life in the World's Most Remote Island Sanctuary.

Once I finished the pendant, I broke out my sketchbook and started playing with different ideas to turn it into a necklace. Did I want a polished look with a beaded rope, or a more organic finish working with more of ZnetShow's sea glass beads?
I decided to stick with a more organic design. Originally in my sketch, I'd envisioned some additional lines of freeform beading snaking up along and around the sea glass, but decided I liked the cleaner lines. Here's the finished piece:
I added some dyed red stones as accents, echoing the deep red seed beads in the fringed pendant.
