About this design:

The primary picture is the beaded necklace in a mix and match set of 2 related necklaces and 2 related coordinating bracelets. I like the idea of sisters, mother and daughter, or friends wearing these to an event. Coordinated and related, but distinctly different instead of matchy watchy. to each her own style.


pyrite quartz, White Opal, Citrine, onyx, moonstone, and a little blackleopardskin jasper, gold filled beads and components

    Wow – you’re quick! Thanks for the compliment.

    If anyone’s interested, maybe I’ll put up a step-by-step cheatybail tutorial? (I hate doing bails, so this is what we nerdy gerls call a workaround)

    The first necklace was easiest to photo for some reason. I was thinking something like mother-of-the-brideor graduate wears the beaded necklace, and the adolescent kid sister gets the pretty little pendant (with about 1.5 inches of jumpring extender built in to grow with her).

    OK. I’ll try to post some cheatybail tutorial pics sometime later this week if I get the chance. It’s not at all hard.

    Thanks for the offer to post “cheaty-bail” directions — I was trying to figure it out from your other necklace posting. :D
