Stardust Nebula Necklace

IDRAW MANY OF MY DESIGN IDEAS from the unique splendor of nature. For this design, inspiration came from one of my greatest loves, the stars and galaxies in the night sky, and their endless beauty. To me, the shaped beads in this pattern represent spiraling galaxies in the infinite universe.

I enjoyed blending the bead shapes and colors to create Stardust Nebula. Follow my design and weave intricate components that evoke the mysteries of the universe, then connect the components to create this galactic-inspired necklace.
