So back in January, I posted about blogging for beads, where Artbeads will periodically send me products to try and create with and all I have to do is blog about my creations. I wasn't totally happy with what I created for them so I re-created the necklace and I think it's much better. The necklace is a little bit longer and will look perfect over the top of a higher neck shirt or layered with other jewelry.
So here is the description of the product again:

This blue and green 40mm Millefiori Murano glass focal bead is highlighted by dangling a clear round crystal and peridot bicone crystals. A silver-plated elongated chain is used. Sterling silver lobster claw clasp. Measures 30 inches. If you aren't familiar with Murano Glass, it's beautiful, handmade glass and has been a famous product of the Venetian island of Murano for centuries.

I used a 26 gauge sterling silver wire and hung green and aqua colored seed beads. Originally, I had the wire showing and didn't care for that, so that's why I re-did. I also changed the orientation of the was horizontal and now I have it vertically. Glad you like it. The focal bead is pretty large and I think the bead itself retails for $45.
