Here's what I originally came up with.
The earrings came out great. However, when I tried the necklace on, I realized that you couldn't really see the bead work. It mostly hid behind my neck. Since I didn't have any extension chains on hand, I ended up replacing the beads with some split rings. Here's what it looks like now.
Much better. But what about the bead work? I didn't want it to go to waste. So, I broke the beads up and made 2 more pairs of earrings.
Wundervoll! Til next time.
