I had these cleare beads with a silverish interior forever, and never found a good use for them because they're quite chunky and never seemed to look right in any project I attempted with them. Then on some fashion blog a saw a photo of a necklace made with similar-shaped beads, all in purple... but I immediately thought of these ones!
This is what I came up with:

no close-up photo because my camera was not being really cooperative.
It took forever to make because apparently I run out of suitable chain, so I assembled a series of jum pring to make all the beaded part... but I like the end result, and it looks really fresh... I think I'll use it a lot this summer!

Very pretty.  I'm sure it will catch the light very nicely.

looks really beautiful! That must of been a pain to have to use tons of jump rings... but worth it, it looks really nice on.
