Beady Left Overs! Meatloaf Monday

 As I mentioned in my previous post, my fab partner Jen Judd sent enough beads to make a few projects.  This one is really different from what I usually do, but I am very pleased by the way it turned out.
First there was this funky but beautiful amethyst colored crystal round flat  faceted piece. It reminded me of all the cool vintage rhinestone pins I used to collect. Next there was the clasp Jen sent. It was so delicate and natural that I had to feature it as part of the focus. Next there were all the pearls in shades of plum and violet. They were the perfect adornment.
I made this a few times and took it apart as many, until the simplicity of it just presented itself.
I used a "silver silk" knitted copper strand & doubled it for the chain.  Its about 18", light and sparkly.
I hope you enjoy this left over dish and have room for one more tomorrow.


  1. Very nice! I relly like how well the clasp works as a part of the crystal "flower".

  2. Meatloaf Monday! Love it. And I love this necklace!!!

  3. Guess I'm lucky it's taking me so long to get through the original reveals. I got to see the leftovers too. Love what you did with them.

  4. That's such a cool name for the post. And this "leftover" necklace is incredibly beautiful!
