time2cre8 ... going UnderCover

No, I'm not becoming a spy...  I've just gotten carried away creating more of my UnderCover series of bead crochet necklaces.

I made the first of these pieces early in the year, and since then I've made six or seven more.  They've been in a bunch of different colors, and a few in different lengths, but all with the thing that gives them their name:  the magnetic clasp is hidden underneath two peyote tubes that wind up looking like a pendant when the closure is worn in the front.

For some reason, I had the urge to make more of these in the past couple of weeks.  It started with that dark steel colored one; and then I saw those copper lined hex beads and thought they'd make a pretty necklace; then came the multicolor one, which is also made with metallic lined beads (this is the first I've done using more than one color); and finally, what could be prettier than matte metallic silver?

Do you do this?  Get on a roll making one thing and just keep creating variations?  I think it's fun to see just how different pieces can look when they're made in different colors.  And Miyuki helps us with this, giving us hundreds and hundreds of Delicas from which to choose!  :-)
