After tonight's 4.5 hours of beadingI am getting there. Just need to finish the fringe which is proving rather tough. Getting the spacing right takes forever. Then the clasp and reworking the side without chain. Should take about another 3 to 4 hours I hope.

This is yesterday's progress after just over 4 hours of work. Now comes the hard part - making sure the second side panel looks the same. I will have to re-work the connection between the side panel and the centre stone. The angle looks wrong but I'll have to see what it looks like when the other panel is done. That's what you get when you bead until the early morning hours.

So far I have spent about 2.5 to 3 hours planning the collar, sourcing the right beads. Knowing me the design will probably change about have a dozen times buy the time I am finished.
