I’ve been working a lot with a weave pattern involving three strands of beads…I wanted the challenge of creating a five strand necklace and I thought it worked well as a choker. When I finished it, my little son looked at it and said it looked like a rattlesnake…I thought he described it quite well.
About the Artist: Michelle B. Johnson
I've been designing jewelry as a hobby for about 5 years. As a working mother of two small children, I find beading to be a wonderful way to relax and stay creative. My grandmother designed jewelry in her retirement years and when she passed away, left me with a lovely collection of her beads, which I use in most of my pieces in some form or fashion. It makes the pieces that much more special to me.
