Ivory beads with teal stringer "waves" in them - yummy!
And, my very favorite, some "tide pool" beads in swirly aqua.
She threw in a few extry beads, too, which was cool. Thank you so much, Kelley!!
I did manage to get some beading done over the weekend and here are the results:
Those incredible floral tri-hole components are from Nancy Schindler at Round Rabbit on Etsy. They are glazed in shades of blue and green and I've added blue chalcedony coins, green Czech faceted glass, brass beads, brass chain and wire.
Here's a closeup of one of the ceramic connectors.
And a closeup of the centerpiece.
Clasp is just a simple brass hook and the necklace is adjustable because of the large loops on the chain - it can be hooked anywhere.
And one last look. I'm still considering putting something hanging from that top chain, but I tried a few things there over the weekend and didn't like any of them. I don't want it to be "overdone" which is something I have a tendency to do. I don't want to take away from how pretty the connectors are by themselves.
