Making a new green necklace

March 23, 2008

I found some new green beads that I want to make into a necklace, bracelet, and earrings to sell. I want to design it a little differently than I normally do. All of my necklaces have the clasp in the back and I want to have the clasp in the front so everyone can really see how beautifully made the lead-free TierraCast clasps are.

I recently purchased some swirly green Agate beads that I really like. I already had 4mm and 10mm green Aventurine rounds. I also bought some dark green Aventurine rectangles and small light green Aventurine teardrops.

For the silver beads, I used shiny silver daisy spacers, round 4mm beads, and a few TierraCast’s beadcaps. How beautifully made they are with their precise triangular cap peaks!  

I put the 4mm Aventurine beads at the back of the necklace so the necklace would be comfortable to wear. I added the swirly Agate and more interesting beads and components to the front where everyone could see them more clearly.

Well, I must stop for now.
