Clear blue ocean

My newest necklace creation reminds me of the clear blue ocean. I was in the mood to make jewelry last weekend so I dug into the stash of beads I've been collecting. I had no instruction to follow for this, other than the inspiration of seeing some seed bead chokers in a book I have. I picked up these raku beads at Big Lots one day and a tube of glass E beads at Tuesday Morning another day. I had no intention of using them together and didn't know what I was buying them for- I just knew they were a great price and I was drawn to the colors. Lucky for me these work together perfectly. Don't you just love it when your stash provides all the inpsiration you need for a project?

Here's what I came up with:



I made a set of earrings to go with it. This was my first try at  a wire wrapped loop.

I love these vibrant colors and would love to keep this for myself, but I've listed it in my shop for someone else to love and enjoy.
