Quartz Crystal Beads


In looking through some old photos I found pictures of my Quartz Crystal Bead Necklace. I made filigree bead caps for the ends of the beads out of sterling silver wire. A similar pattern to much of my wire jewelry.



The clasp also blends in and looks like one of the beads. I entered this necklace into the Saul Bell Design Awards but I didn't send a professionally taken photograph. I sent one way better than the photos above but it just didn't sing the way it needed to. It's a good lesson to dish out the money to have the professionals do what they are best at.
Hope you have a fantastic Friday!
