Dana's Choice

About this design:

I wanted to make a multi-strand necklace and I thought the green opal puffs would go nicely with the earthy colors of seed beads that I chose. Dana, a woman who had a table at the farmer's market I was selling at, wanted the necklace plus a pair of earrings to go with it. So I borrowed a design from a beading magazine and used most of the same beads to make a pair of matching earrings. I really love the earthy colors of this set.


The necklace is made up of copper green opal puffs, red aventurine,crystal bicones and several different colors and sizes of seed beads, finished off with some pretty copper cones and a copper clasp.
