Talisman Shard Necklace

I made this yesterday and wore it to lunch with a friend. The waiter loved it and almost forgot to take our order! I like it too – I scented it with a bit of peppermint oil and it helped me feel cooler in the heat (103F yesterday).
The little shards take as much time to make as the larger ones, interestingly enough, but I like the delicacy of the small faces. I wish I were a better jewelry craftsman. Maybe I can learn patience if I sit quietly and string beads for a little while every day.
I’m going to put together another one of these today with some African trade beads and heishi.
