Paisley is one of my favorite shapes. I created the paisley shape as an open shape instead of closed as this showcases the beads more attractively. I used blues, greens, and AB clear faceted beads along with star-shaped beads.
The crystal beads in the design are strung with brass wire in a lacy woven pattern so that when sunlight hits them, they look suspended in mid-air. The vivid colors really catch the sunlight.
The dangles are made from tiny clear seed beads that lightly glow in the darkness. At the bottom of each dangle are clapperless bells like belly dancers wear; when the dangles brush against each other, they make a delightful chime noise.
One of the advantages of this design is it comes with its own hook. You can hang it from a chain, branch in a tree, or practically anywhere you want many sparkles.
