Crystal Blue Persuasion Necklace and Earrings

Since the Monday (shabby and grungy) SSS challenge blog with the theme of anything goes said we were welcome to enter jewellery, I decided to enter a set I made a couple weeks ago.

I made it hoping to get on a design team but turns out they only accept US residents. I even have a US addy I can use but unfortunately, the reason is for speed of delivery and that’s something I can’t offer at that address. I had won a prize of beads from this same company so I used mostly their beads to make this. All the pearls are from ZnetShows.

The crystals are Swarovski, though Znet also has amazing crystals, and the lampwork bead is one I fell in love with years ago when I bought it but it’s not just an bead and I hadn’t found the right home for it until I made this necklace.

I’m afraid my loops aren’t quite perfect on these earrings though what looks like a lot in a close up photo is probably only a mm or 2 IRL. I made my own earwires for the first time and I was pretty proud.

Enjoy, Rebecca

RECIPE (as above) plus silver head pins, silver lobster clasp, rhinestone rondelles-Ebay, Beadsmith 19 strand wire, extender chain
