Fall Necklace

 I made this set awhile back and finally got a chance to upload the images. The necklace is choker length and the bracelet is about 6 and a half inches long. I used 6mm translucent Czech glass beads, 4mm Swarovski crystals. The crystals are light topaz, moonlight, crystal copper, and fire opal. The glass beads are orange and dark topaz. These are both strung on medium Soft Flex, the red from my sophisticated trio. I also made the extenders from a spool of chain I bought from Rings and Things. I like being able to make my extenders rather than always using the pre-made ones. This is another version of my double stranded beading wire designs.

(And ya, the formatting on this post is weird - it's tricky working with the post editor on my netbook. Only so much screen space and no mouse. Though blogging away from my desktop is nice.)
