I hand painted some old wooden beads in an ombre design using Q-tips for this necklace.  This was pretty easy as the Q-tips made great dots on my beads.  Then I put the necklace together using memory wire and some chain.  Directions on my blog at http://hubpages.com/hub/DIY-Jewelry-Tutorial-How-to-Handpaint-Beads-to-Make-a-Colorful-Statement-Necklace
