About this design:

I've had the lampwork beads for a while but nothing seemed to go with them. When I saw the links and large rounds on Etsy I immediately pictured these beads. What do you think? Too much going on or not enough?

Components:

Gunmetal chain, clasp and tassel from LB, links, large plated beads and lampwork beads from Etsy, smoke cathedral beads.

    Gail, this is a gorgeous combination of colors. The gunmetal really compliments the colors in the lampwork. Those links are fabulous. I just love everything about your design!

    The links certainly dress up this design. The lampwork bead color really offsets the the tassel, links and cathedral beads to a tee. Very nice design.

    love this colour combo!(i’ve used silver pyrite tubes with champagne crystals, so quite similar) and the detail in the beads is so complimentary to the design – love the rope effect & the drape of the tassel!

    Thanks everyone! Anyone else having trouble with pictures looking fuzzy once they’re uploaded? I noticed that mine lose a lot of clarity and detail once they’re posted. Am I doing something wrong? Or not doing something I should be?

    The necklace looks great – - those links are just fabulous, especially the way you used them. And your photos look pretty clear to me – - only suggestion is to increase the resolution when you save/upload them. Great work, Gail !

    Gail,
    These gunmetal pieces match your lamp work beads perfectly. Very dressy piece. Wouldn’t that look great on a simple little black dress?

    The pictures are coming in very clearly for me.
    Congratulations on a wonderful piece!

    Wow on those links!! The lampwork beads are perfect with the gunmetal.
    Your first photo is kinda blurry but the other 2 are perfect. I’ve been having the same issue & it is always the 1st photo that doesn’t look right.
