Disclaimer: These beads were a complete pain in the butt to photograph. I could not figure out how to photograph them so they look like they do in person, but you can get a general idea of the necklace.
I think that I’ve mentioned that I am trying to add more color to my wardrobe by making/wearing more colorful accessories and jewelry. I made this necklace to wear with a navy and white dress that I wore to a rehearsal dinner last month. I bought the beads and supplies at Michael’s. I didn’t want to buy enough beads to do three stands around my whole neck, so I attached them to a chain. The beads are made of glass, so they are pretty heavy. I played around with the strands until I found a combination that I liked. Since the dinner, I have worn the necklace with a t-shirt/jeans to spruce up an otherwise plain outfit.
