When I picked up a new blouse in a powder blue color over the weekend I actually remembered these beads and really wanted to make something new to wear with it.
Then I remembered these beads! (Thanks Kay!)
They are so pretty and sparkly! I think there are a few beads left for a bracelet so that's what I am making next!
This was intended to be fairly conservative and simple so I strung the main focal piece on beading wire and crimped it to a length of 5 or 6 chain links in matte silver tone.
I then strung 3 or 4 crystals on either side with beading wire and crimped that to the final chain links. The last step was adding a very cute matte silver toggle clasp.
The earrings were simple too! Just a couple of chain links, a clear bicone and a small blue bead on the end.
Easy, inexpensive :) and simple!
