Crazy Agat

At last I have finished this necklace. It was almost ready as early as last month, but because of Chinese custom I couldn't receive my agate beads.
Yes, yes, I know it looks crazy, but the necklace such as the name of gemstone (Crazy Agate). :-)
All seed beads, except olive gold- luster, are 15/0 size. I used it in order to achieve monochromatic effect of each segment.
While I was working on the necklace I watched "X files" (I adore this serial!) and last beads were sewed on simultaneously with ending of ninth season. :-)
I understand that the design is very unusual, therefore feel free saying all what you think about it, even if it is terrible to your mind. :-)

The necklace was made for my friend on her birthday. In my opinion garnet is a royal gemstone. You don't need invent what to do with it. It is beautiful by its own!

Gusset Sheet

I made this necklace last year. It took near two month to do it.
It is not my idea. The work was done according the scheme of famous Russian master Galina Pchiolkina. Here you can see her scheme.

It was planned as a chicken. But after finishing making the second wing, I realized that their form and size are not of chicken. Thus it was formed such Frankenstein: semi-chicken, semi-hen.
P.S. It is beaded egg.
