Blue Dream

About this design:

My first multi-strand necklace.
I had those blue magnesite beads for a while. So I made 3 strands, separated them with bugle beads, added 2 Bali beads and sterling silver wire with an extender. What do you think?


Magnesite, Bali silver, sterling silver, bugle beads

    This is beautiful. I never would have known it was a first run at a multi strander. I really like the tiny silver accents between the beads.

    Irina, beautiful necklace. Simple pattern, but accumulated color gives it impact. Great :)
