Hi Friends,

      Its been a long time, I know am such a lazy blogger, and I keep repeating it over and over without any improvement, lol...... you just have to take me as I am, have been so preoccupied with a lot of things recently.

      Have been experimenting with a stitch called Ogallala netting stitch, Ogallala stitch is a variation of netting that is worked from an existing strand or strip of beadwork, the tightly packed stitches create a wonderful ruffle effect with an organic feel.

This Ogallala netting made by me is no where near perfect,the ruffles are uneven,  I made it using  orange size 2 seed bead, white size 2 seed bead, and I connected the ruffles together using size 10 crystal bead.

          Using  interconnected ruffled rings, this elegant and eye catching neckpiece was made with size 2 seed bead and accentuated with silver bicone beads and and white round bead, then I finished it attaching a beaded toggle clasps made with peyote stitch.

I was inspired to make the ogallala neckpiece, when I saw this inspirational designs here on Pinterest, kudos to the designers.

What do you think about my ruffled neckpiece,  share your thought with me at the comment section.

Happy Beading,
