Hi!

This is a 4-stranded necklace for a friend of mine.  It is made of peridot green glass beads, peridot green multifaceted crystal, and metallic brown Swarovski crystals (over 200 of those little guys.  Can you believe it?) Anyway it was fun to make and I can hardly wait to see a pic of her wearing it.

front view (please excuse my pudgy fingers):

side view ( so you can see the different lengths):

It's much brighter in person....just couldn't get the lighting right tonite.  Comments would be great! Thanks!!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

You guys!   Embarrassed  Thank you for all the nice words.  Wanting to take someone else's jewelry is the sincerest form of flattery, I think.  Smiley

If you think it's gorgeous now just wait till you see Bubba*tink modeling it!

beeeautiful! I love green beads. Really, really nicely spaced lengths, I find that harder than it looks (stringing lots of different lengths that is).

Hi Lollythetall!!

Thanks!!  You right, it is tough esp when you have to work with a certain pattern and you have to keep to it so sometimes you'll get wonky spacings between the strands to keep the pattern.  Smiley

Green is good!!

Have a wonderful day!!
