|Spring themed bead "jumble"|
I've been thinking of doing a necklace like this for quite some time. Just a wonderful jumble of beads as the focal point, almost like a large beaded bead, but not (if that makes any sense at all). I felt that the spring theme would be exceptionally good for this.
I did a herringbone rope in two different shades of gold seed beads. I used a wonderful mix of seed beads and a combination of pressed glass leaf beads in two different colors. I then accented the green with blue, pink, yellow, and purple Swarovski crystal beads in fun flower and butterfly shapes.
|Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp|
I then finished this necklace a fantastic sterling silver leaf toggle clasp. I love this clasp. It's so much fun and fits the necklace perfectly. It's quite a large clasp, but because it has a filigree feel to it, it makes it very delicate.
I've very happy with how this necklace turned out. I think it captures the spring theme perfectly.

I want to thank ArtBeads for these opportunities to try out some of their beads. It gives me the opportunity to try things that I normally wouldn't, to give myself a huge shove out of my comfort zone.
