Swirling in the Red

About this design:

Once again going through my stash to find another polymer focal which I needed to address. This time I decided to make myself a necklace. Simple with silver to wear both casual or for special occasions.


I have this large oval polymer focal in swirling of deep stripes of reds and pinks. A really nice bead to work with. I went with silver findings. Seemed to do the trick as I used two ornate silver bead caps. I have some cherry quartz nuggets that I used along with some smaller crystals and tiny silver spacers. Put it all together on a very shiny chain with a lobster claw clasp.

    Simply lovely.. It reminds me of candy. ;) I adore Cherry Quartz!
    Can I ask you if you used an eye pin for the 3 bead stations,or did you use craft wire?
