Playing with Beads

Four necklaces done, though I'm thinking of re-stringing the heart one. Photos are up at the deviantArt account.

They're all gorgeous, although I think the heart one is my favorite. Mind you, I think the little red heart bead is overwhelmed by all the black, but it may be more prominent when worn, so I'm willing to reserve judgment on that.

Thank you! I didn't want to put in too much of the poem, for those who haven't read it, but it goes like this:

The Queen of Hearts confessing to her sister queen, the Queen of Spades, of how the King of Clubs seduced her and how his crow claws dug into her chest and drew out the heart, and how now she'll die if she doesn't get it back. The Queen of Spades seems cool and says how "black must stay together, and shun the red for knaves"... and opens her mouth and unfurls her tongue and the heart is sitting on it, a small wet red heart like a bead strung on silk.

So if the little red heart seems overwhelmed by all the black, I've conveyed it exactly right. ^_^
