Tiles and Hexagons Reversible Necklace

About this design:

Noticed some tile beads in my stash that were olive green and metallic. A nice mix - I was going to use them randomly but noticed that they were green on one side and metallic on the other. So, the necklace could be worn either way.

    Oh Beady, this is awesome! I love everything about it. The fringe is darling (do people still use that word? Hmmm) . I love it! It’s darling. I especially like the fringe and that it’s reversible.

    I agree with Sweetjane. It does have an art deco feel about it. I was trying to put my finger on it and she said it. I happen to love art deco by the way. I like both sides but I think I like the metallic side the best. It’s awesome, as always.

    Nice design using the hexagons! Their ivory color & geometric shape create such a visual impact. I especially like how you added the beaded fringe at the V-point. I’m feeling a bold, sassy vibe reminiscent of days past…..
