This necklace came about as the first attempt to make by Godmother a necklace for her birthday present, some months ago. First, I gathered the beads, which included blue or teal glass beads, black glass beads, black onyx teardrop beads, and a gemstone leaf pendant.
Next I started arranging the beads in a pattern for the necklace.
With so many black beads, I had to make sure to use the blue/teal beads to break up the black.
All done. Now I need to string the beads on beading wire and finish it off with the findings, such as the clasp.This is the finished product.
I ended up not sending this one to my Godmother since she's more into earth tones but it found a home the following weekend when my Aunt came over and went through my entire inventory. It went perfectly with her outfit she had on. So that shows there's a piece out for there for everyone.
