Magnification of seed beads used to show which strand belongs to whom
In order to be able to more easily identify which strand represents which person, I add small seed beads of different colours towards the end of the strand before it meets the clasp.
The much magnified image here shows three tiny pink and three blue seed beads showing the separate strands for a little girl and a little boy.
The strand for the mother is unmarked as it is easily identified due to the larger (8mm) planet beads as opposed to the smaller (6mm) ones on the strands for the children.
The clasp is placed in the same position on each strand. This is chosen as the place where there are fewest planets so that what planet beads there are will be more likely to be on display in the front section of the necklace.
