Though to the last to be posted in the series, this elegant piece of jewelry in a red and black color scheme was the first to be photographed (and the first constructed, as well, I believe.) I just love that textured silver bead set with tiny red crystals.
I don't know how anyone can look at this gorgeous pin and not get that bead-stringing is as valid a medium as metal-working, lampwork or indeed any other craft.
