In addition to a new lanyard necklace with olivine glass and light green and yellow seed beads, I also put together a piece with gold freshwater cultured pearls. It's asymmetrical in design, which is a different approach for me and I've not decided whether it's going to be a lanyard necklace, yet. I've got some nice clasps I can use if I decide against making it a lanyard. I got the idea for the necklace from a book I bought called Making Designer Gemstone and Pearl Jewelry by Tammy Powley.
(click to enlarge picture)I ran out of silver lobster claw clasps with a swivel doing the red, white and blue necklace badge lanyards I mentioned Monday (and posted to Etsy today) and the place I just ordered from is out of stock. I hope I can find them somewhere soon - I've just got a little over a week before BayCon and I've taken the plunge and applied for a space in Artist's Alley. I guess there's still a chance I won't get it, but if I do, I need those clasps soon!
