Egyptian Collar sounds a little kinky to me for some reason. But anyway, here they are. It’s a new way for me to work and I’ve done some more today to work on pefecting it and getting the collar shape every time.
It’s not about the shape though, it’s more about how the design is applied so it goes symmetrically around the whole thing.
Ideally, the other side of the bead will look the same or at least equally symmetrical. It’s a lot of fun to try and do things in a way that no one else is doing them. Now, I know there are other people out there doing this kind of thing but I’m coming at it from my own perspective and quite by accident, not by trying to do a technique that I’ve seen.
