Peppermint Dreams / Valentine (Ionic Polyhedra Pentacluster)
This is a 10 sided beaded bead from the same pattern as the cube ring. I left off the drop beads at the corners to allow the eye to probe into the shape, and made an additional embellishment strip to form a bail. Then I completed the necklace with a twisted herringbone rope and a "Spinning Top" bead for the clasp. (Free pattern Spinning Top on Bead Infinitum) I think I will make two more Spinning Tops for earrings.
Both beads designed by: Bead Infinitum (Gwen Fisher and Florence Turnour)
