Paper Beads Pearls and Briolets – day 245


Part of the joy in creating something is overcoming challenges along the way.  I love long necklaces because you have more than one option in wearing it and great for layering, mixing and matching…..You know how I love incorporating pearls and crystals to my jewelry pieces, this is exactly what I did with this Long and Luxurious Necklace.

Here’s the more than one way you can wear it:

Lariat

I made a removable charm that can be attached to the lobster claw clasp so you can wear it as a lariat.  It made my day when I fixed the problem of the one end of the necklace looking unfinished.

    Very inventive idea. I really like the ring of tiny paper beads. The colors here are making me wish for spring
