A Galactic Crystal Journey

A few weeks back, I posted about my crystal components order from Artbeads. Well...after much thought and careful beading, or maybe after much beading and careful thought.....either way, I finished one of my designs. Well...actually, I've finished 2 of the 4 designs I'm making, but not all the photos are completed yet. If you want to see the other designs or maybe you just like my blog, you can always follow me. keep up with new jewelry pieces listed in any of my 3 shops and "reader only" sale events, subscribe to my monthly newsletter.
This is part of a collection of crystal components I received.
And this is the very pretty necklace I made with the crystal collection.....and a few of my own materials. The design has an Autumn feel to it, which is what I wanted to express, even though, I think it could be worn during any season. I mixed a Topaz helix, a faceted Indian Red round, and a faceted Light-Colorado Topaz round above the Galactic "Golden Shadow" pendant. I accented the crystal beads with Glass seed beads too. After I connected the "Golden Shadow" 2-ring channels to my gold chain, I felt it was missing something. So, I added lil clusters of Ruby crystals with gold & yellow Glass seed beads between each channel. It may be hard to see in the photo, but I beaded each crystal and the clusters on Antique Copper ball headpins. I simply used gold chain as a bail for the Galactic pendant. All in all, I'm happy with the way the necklace turned out, and I think all the colors blend really well to show off the stunning Galactic pendant. think of a unique name for this beautiful necklace. ;) Look for more photos this week when I list the necklace to my etsy shop.
