Black Magic

About this design:

I made this necklace to go with a top that I wore to my hubby's family reunion banquet. My top was a patterned black and white, so i wanted something simple and not busy like my top. this is the result.


Black pillow beads (not sure what they are), silver bali spacer beads, black chain and findings.
