Just completed this project. I like how versatile this piece can be. It has a natural elegant feel to it, though. Made of Hematite frame beads, Swarovski crystal rondelles and silver plated findings.

This has a lovely understated elegance about it.  It looks more expensive than perhaps it really is.

What a fantastic and unique piece.  It almost has an Art Deco look to it, a style I adore.

It's so pretty! I did something similar with some small beads and (I think) those exact same square beads and made some earrings. I really like the bright, clear beads paired with the dark, square beads. And the findings are lovely.

Thanks everyone!

Also, you probably did have those exact beads...came from Michaels! I was in there tonight...so much fun. I have to drive an hour to get to the nearest one so it's like a treat to go!
