Jeweled Necklace

I made this necklace this morning. It is so pretty and sparkly! I saw another necklace on display at my Michaels store and I used that one as a template but used a few different beads that I liked better. Here it is on the bead board:

The bead board is very helpful to lay out the beads in your pattern before you string them. It is also helpful because it has measurements on how long your necklace will be. I made mine to be 12 inches for the first strand and 10 inches for the second strand.

Each strand has 4 different types of beads. I like to have a mix of natural, gemstone and metallic. It gives a nice flow to the design and adds sparkle! I am also loving the toggle claps lately! I have been struggling with the lobster clasps and and am not that confident in magnetic clasps yet.

Thanks for looking at my design!
