Holiday Necklace

Last month I received a bag of beads from Rings & Things, a cute mix of holiday glass beads. It took me a little while to figure out how to use them, then it took me awhile longer to get a chance to photograph the necklace I made.

This is how the necklace turned out. Some of the beads were long enough I wanted to let them hang down instead of sitting sideways being strung. So I put them on paddle head pins I had and attached them to a length of chain.

The chain I purchased from Rings & Things awhile back and it's come in handy for multiple projects. I have a whole spool of it which should last awhile longer. The nice thing about this chain is the way the links are formed, the edges add a little bit of sparkle to designs the way they catch the light.

The beads can be found within the category here. The bag I received was mixed Christmas/winter beads instead of only one of the specific shapes. I'd recommend checking them out, the pictures over on Rings and Things site show off the beads better than my photograph here. The detail on the beads is nice and they are fun to work with.

With Valentines day next month, they do also have some cute heart shaped glass beads.

FTC compliance disclosure: The glass beads in the necklace I received for free from Rings & Things.
