Okay, The Rose and Leather necklace has now been fixed.
Here is what it originally looked like with kinks:
Now, here it is fixed, no more kinks:
What I learned that the weight of the beads makes a difference in the appearance of the final product. In the original, I used the crocheted string and beads, which had a nice lace like effect. BUT, the seed beads were not heavy enough and the string would kink up. So, I used the wire wrap technique to overcome that.
I made this necklace for myself, and will continue to wear it. I am much happier with the overall look.
The crocheted bead string still captures my attention, so I will continue to explore ways to use this technique. I have, in the past, made single string opera length necklaces with a small pendant at the bottom. That has helped to keep the string from kinking. I gave these necklaces to friends. I will have to follow up with them to see how these long necklaces wore day-to-day.
