Instead of "What’s on My Bench" this is more like an episode of "What’s on My Dining Room Table"! I bought these beads back in March, and they have sat on my dining room table since then. I was inspired by their color, but didn't know what to do with them. All I knew was that I wanted to make something with a tassel, but not another bracelet...
The color I'm usually drawn to is purple, but this year I'm really in love with this blue-green color. One morning recently, I sat and said to myself "this has to be done today!", so I started to put the beads in an order. I like the rosary link look, but if I use just beads it will be very heavy to wear.
So, I divided it up and added chain - I've had those flower links forever, and thought they would be a nice accent for the tassel. After I put it all together I'm very pleased with the outcome, and I even had a few beads leftover to make matching earrings. I hope you like it too!
Thank you Michele - your necklace and earrings are gorgeous! Until next week!
