I wanted to add more of the large beads to the necklaces so I alternated the chameleon beads that were sort of green and brownish-orange. They have a shimmery multi-colour effect so I used some seed beads for in between that had that same quality.
In the end, I like this necklace but I made a mistake that will bug me every time I wear it. I put a centre bead on the shorter necklace and not on the longer necklace. It makes the longer necklace hang a little funny and my obsessive nature doesn't like it. Next time I'll make sure the longer necklace has that centre bead.
|See what I mean? The longer strand looks wonky.
I also did some earrings and a bracelet to match.
I was pleased with the bracelet and earrings. I flipped the longer section of the necklace over my head and I really like the single strand much better. I think I'll separate them and find a larger charm to hang from the unloved longer strand. Maybe that will fix it.
In the meantime, more beads and more jewelry tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Here's where I'm partying:
