I was very pleased with my first attempt at making a 27" linked necklace, that is at building a necklace with beads on a handmade "chain". I'd always thought that the chain went through the beads, and it does, kind of, but really you make each bead with loops on each end separately then join them, so it looks like a chain runs through them. The colors don't come out very well in this picture but are really a soft pink and an equally pastel green, with mother of pearl reflecting those colors in the long bits of abalone shell in-between.

Sounds great....swarovski crystals at www.kgottfriedinc.com do add to online jewelry collections.
