|The Steph Necklace - Before pic|
As you can see the necklace above was a heavy, chunky style which is fine and I had no intention of changing it. But once I took it apart it had a mind of its own! And since I had it so long I knew she wouldn't mind me changing the look of it. So, I decided to group the similar beads together, add chain, and add a focal.
After grouping the similar beads together the necklace needed something...a seperation with a focal bead. I didn't want the focal bead to really be the focus but more of a seperator inbetween the bead groupings. But, I wanted everything to still flow well together. I like that this necklace looks asymetrical and is long so no clasp is needed!
|After pic...I even had extra beads to make matching earrings!|
