due to a death in the family last week and the funeral being today I didn't get around to making anything for the bead hoarders blog hop till this afternoon.
it's not really a good use of a LOT of beads but i did use up some of my stash. I was looking through some very outdated bead magazines and found this idea for wire and beads. Originally designed to be a bracelet I decided to create a focal for a necklace instead. and then after I made the sample with craft wire I made another with artistic wire.
the first one is made with craft wire and though I don't care for the colour of the silver it does work well with the glass pearls and the black cat's eyes beads.
the second one uses artistic wire with silver plated beads , instead of chain I used silver lined glass beads to create the "chain"
Now I am wondering if matching earrings are necessary or not.
thanks for stopping by even though i didnt meet the deadline
