A little while back, my uncle bought my aunt these earrings:



She absolutely loved them but never had anything to wear them with. So, when I started fooling around with making jewelry, she asked me to attempt to make her a necklace to match.

My result with the earrings:



All the beads and the charm are swarovski crystal and the project, thanks to sales, cost just under $25 for everything including a lot of little things like jumprings and clamps I didn't have.

How did I do?

You did a wonderful job of the matching!  Not only the colors, but the style of the pieces too.  I have to say I would totally love to wear that.

Also, the clasp is amazing-- where did you find it?

Thank you very much. She's worn it a few times and it looks rather shiny when paired with liliac or light green outfits.

I found the clasp at my local bead store - the Bead Garden in Havertown, PA.

You'd never guess that they weren't made at the same time! You did a great job matching up! Very pretty.
