Emeralds Forever
by Sharon Erwine
Eaton Rapids, Michigan

Sharon says, "Once I saw these emerald cathedral beads, I wanted to make an antique looking necklace. I ran into a big problem - the green emerald color was so dark that my first attempt using all black just lost the green color. The owner of my local bead store suggested I use some crystals in the center, which worked well to bring the green color out. I had to omit the lace overlay embellishment, though, because it darkened the green. Next, I wanted to make a larger bead unit, so I made three beaded beads, then carefully stitched them together at the centers to align the cathedral beads. The whole necklace was still difficult to photograph to catch the greens, but when worn, the necklace sparkles the subtle greens of emeralds."
