A few posts ago, I showed you the bezelled cab which resulted from teaching a class at the BSV January Bead Retreat. At the time, I was trying to decide how best to hang the cab. Previously I had made a spiral rope for the first one which I really liked, but it didn't seem to suit the black and aqua version. After much staring at the cab and thinking about what would work, I decided to go for a lacy style and used the right angle weave Romantica chain from the class I did with Marcia DeCoster a few years ago. Keeping it in the same colours (same beads)and making a clasp inspired by both Marcia's medallions and Mikki Ferrugiaro's snap clasp tutorial, I think I have managed to complement the cab fairly well.
