I always space beads like this out in a necklace, because I feel that a necklace full of these vibrant beads would be too much. When it comes to making up the necklace though, I always struggle to find spacer beads that will look "just right". So I decided I would make my own spacers this time out of the background colour used in the millefiori beads. I made up a batch of polymer spacer nuggets.
Then I put them together in a necklace.
Of course, I needed a little bead to space out the spacers and I spent a while deciding on those. Ho hum!! I think it works though.
