About this design:

Topaz crystal from LB. Just love to see it sparkle. There isn't much of a design here. My main reason for showing this is these beads the topaz were such a great buy $2 for a strand. I got 2 strands and combined w/leftovers - voila!


LBTopaz crystal and some left over larger crystals and a few gold rondels.

    There’s nothing wrong with a simple design. This is a very classic piece and the $2.00 beads are a fabulous shade of topaz.

    Agree with Gail, and a good combination of pearls is also an element of design. This is so sparkly and festive! Sometimes you need just such a piece. (I made something along those lines a couple of years back, just stringing beautiful stones — but made it about twice as long, I guess, and my, it turned out heavy! Only wear it at parties… Another lesson learned…)

    It looks like one of the necklaces I found in my great-grandma’s jewelry when she gave my little sister and me a bunch to play with as children. Very classic and sparkly!
