Who is this project for? Women

What materials did you use? Pearls, Quartz, Crystals, & Brass Spacer Beads were strong on 49 strand wire. 26 gauge wire was used to create the beaded chain and loops attaching it to the main body of the necklace. 23 gauge ball pins were used to create the dangles in the middle strand.

What are you most proud of? I am please with my choice of materials and the variation within the individual strands.

Susan, this necklace is stunning. What I like about lemon quartz when you it put against black you can see nice blue color in the stone. Try it!

I will. Thanks for the suggestion. Hope everything is improving in Northern Virginia. Goodness this heat has been awful. I've seen some of your Facebook postings. Everything looks great! I've got a hectic month coming up so I don't know how much time I am going to have to work on new projects. It is such wonderful therapy that I'll have to squeeze some beading in. It's great hearing from you, Aga. Try to stay cool!

Very nice work. I would like to do some more designs with pearls you just inspired me. Thanks.

Isn't it great how we all inspire each other? Thank you. Get those pearls going!

It reminds me of something I'd see Liz Taylor or Audry Hepburn wearing. Lovely
