This necklace features both Fiberoptic Duo beaded beads: two cube versions and three octahedron versions. I wanted to predominantly feature these beaded beads in this necklace, so I strung them relatively simply with prairie green Czech glass fire polish beads, 6° Czech seed beads, smoky quartz round beads, and a couple of Swarovski bicone crystals just surrounding the beaded beads. I was tempted to use additional shapes and colors of Czech glass beads, but anything more complicated would have detracted from the beaded beads, so I went with the "less is more" approach and I'm happy with how it turned out.
The Fiberoptic Duo Beaded Beads pattern is available exclusively at beadorigami.com if you'd like to make your own versions of these beaded beads.
