I'm trying to use up all those beads and jewelry making materials that tend to accumulate in one's bead box... you know those beads you buy because you like them but don't have a project for them in mind when you buy them? I figure if I use up what I have now, then I can go on a big shopping trip and stock up on new stuff. Anyway, this necklace is one of the recent pieces I've made using odds and end beads and findings I had laying around. I used light blue crochet beads from Michaels, lapi lazuli beads from an old necklace, delicate silver filigree bead caps and large silver bead caps from a really old necklace of my mom's, with a few plain old glass beads thrown in for good measure. They are strung randomly on wire and attached to a bit of chain that I took from yet another old necklace that I was simply bored with. I was going for a utilitarian yet feminine, military-inspired look. Comments appreciated! Thanks for looking.
