Monday Miscellany - Two New Necklaces

Two necklaces I'm working on - not sure if they're quite finished yet but here's where I am so far.

The first one started as an assortment of beads I found at JoAnn's fabrics - tiger's eye, gold coated faceted rounds, clear citrine colored faceted rounds and a few other miscellaneous beads. I got out some oxidized brass filigree and chain from Accessories Susan and started piecing this together with some other beads in my stash and a gold coin pearl. Excuse the terrible photography in both of these pictures - it's late evening as I write this, and I'm snapping the pictures at my desk.



The next one uses charoite and sunstone with a twisted and oxidized wire chain. I love how the sunstone picks up some of the shading in the charoite yet gives contrast overall. I'm pretty happy with this design as-is but I'm still slightly pondering possibilities.



And that's all for today - come back for some tid-bits tomorrow!

Love how you have used the chain, especially in the 2nd one. Gives it a fun vibe!
