About this design:

I feel in love with the pendant and knew that I wanted to do something with it, the cream chain, silver findings and cream metal beads all came from the same line and then I found the silver glass foil beads and the necklace took shape. I am not totally sure about the bracelet and have done another one that compliments this set and was wearing them both today and quite like it.


Metal findings, cream metal beads and chain, metal pendant and silver foil smokey glass beads.

    This is great, it’s quite a statement necklace and ensamble! The first thing that came to mind when I saw the title was the movie “Play Misty for Me” with Clint Eastwood, Donna Mills and Jessica Walter.

    Outstanding set!! Love the colors and I am in love with the pendant as well…How is that attached? String? How is it finished in the back? I have been using small sead beads to attach pendants but I like the clean lines of the string.
    Into my favs… :)

    thanks everyone for the great feedback. Judith I used seed beads to attach the pendant, when I was putting it together I didn’t want the string to show. I am having a problem with the necklace though, I have had to put it back together 3 times it has been at the chain end where I have a crimp tube and the seed beads does anyone have any suggestions how I can get this to stay together?

    I’ll bet I know where your got your stuff. I almost bought the same things (including the ivory toggles) but the only pendant left was all scuffed and chipped. I love this. I thought the ivory was kind of cool. They discontinued it so you really have collectors stuff now. Fave.

    Can you tell us in a little more detail what the problem is with the seed beads/string? Why have you had to work with it three times … is it breaking, string showing, etc? Tnx. SLS

    SLS, I think that either the string is breaking or the crimp tube is not securing. My mom who is also a beader mentioned that maybe I should use a crimp bead instead of a tube. The necklace has not broken in the same spot each time which is also a puzzle to me. What do you think? Thanks, CP

    Hmmmm, well, depending upon how heavy the overall necklace is, maybe you need to use a little heavier beading wire. That could be the first thing to start with.

    You could also use two crimp beads if you’ve not tried that. So thread one, then a little round bead, then another crimp bead, and thread all those back through each other and back through 2-3 beads down the necklace before you close the crimp bead. Make sure that you crimp it in both directions with your crimp bead tool.

    Another thing to look for if it isn’t breaking in the same place is to see if some of the beads are a little jagged or rough on one end in case they are actually cutting the wire as well. I have some sharp hematite that did just that! The fix for that is to put little round or small beads in-between each bead to add a little extra flexiblity along the wire.

    If you do all three things, I would think that you would really be set!! Let us know how it works out! It’s a beautiful necklace, just sounds like it needs a little TLC … :-) SLS
