Burgundy Beaded Treasure

About this design:

Ok, I have to admit, I am addicted to these 'beaded beads'! This time in shades of burgundy/silver/gold and the rest of the necklace fell into place from there.

Clasp can be worn in back or on the side (too pretty to hide?), and it's also made with garnets in 3 trios different sizes/shapes, lampwork glass in a few sizes, hill tribe silver disks, gold leafed wooden beads, raku beads, and some of those luscious copper beads that are heat treated with 24 kt gold in a few sizes and shapes.


See above.

    LOL, I like your idea! I’ll have to try that when I wear it. I have a beautiful red/burgundy silk top that I’m planning to wear it with. Wonder if it will look like I have a different necklace on every 30 minutes??! SLS
