Black & White

About this design:

This is a long necklace made with black and white beads with different shapes and sizes. I have used SS tubes to separate the beads, which makes an airy feel. I have also used some gorgeous Black Dahlia aluminium discs from Lillypilly here on LB.


Black Sardonyx, Mother of Pearl, Onyx faceted rounds, ring and cubes, White Pearls, Sterling silver tubes, Sterling silver wire, Artisan silver charm, Lillypilly discs, Carved Magnesite, beading wire, crimp beads and SS crimp bead covers.

    Oh Coffee Chick…this is such a fashion statement. Love the Y shape,and the carved bead over the silver pendant really speaks to me! I agree that the silver tubes give it an airy feel. Fabulous with a white sundress,or the little black dress,as well as dressing up jeans and t shirt.

    Lovely and unique design! Love the Lillypilly and that looks like gorgeous MOP! Rockin’ summer necklace! (I go everywhere in jeans, half the time in blue and half in black.) This would be great with black jeans and a white peasant blouse or a LBD!) Love it!!
