Happy Day Ring & Necklace

As I mentioned yesterday, I had completed my ring project with the Swarovski faceted button as a base and wanted to finish up the necklace before posting it.

I like the way this pendant looks on a silver chain, so I am going to live with it for a couple days before deciding whether I want to make a beaded necklace for it or not.

I have to admit I love this little ring! Both projects have made me smile which is when I know I have succeeded to some degree. :) Overall, a happy day!

I posted the 6mm air blue pendants on Monday and am happy to say this was sort of what I had in mind when I selected these Swarovski crystal beads from Artbeads.com. As usual, designs have a tendency to evolve as you go, but hopefully it is for the better.

I experimented with more and less of the air blue pendants for the ring before settling on this formation with a 6mm top drilled crystal ab in the center. I had a top drilled jonquil in the center at first and while that looked very sun-shiny, I liked the combination of silver and crystal ab with the air blue beads.

I hope these pieces make you smile! I had a lot of fun making them!

Both are lovely...I agree with you I really love the pendant on the chain...I'm sure it would look great amongst beads but on the chain it stands along and makes a huge statement!!!

Cheers
