Green drops

A while ago, I brought a couple of Miyuki drop beads from the crafting store - your typical "I was actually looking for something else, but couldn't resist" purchase. After that, they typically remained in one of my drawers for ages. Recently, however, I decided to use them in a simple beaded necklace. 
To make sure the green shaded beads are the main focus of the jewelry, I combined them with beige ones. For the  inner part of the spiral, I used smaller silver beads which also add a little shimmer to the project.
As I'll probably wear the necklace to sweaters and turtlenecks, I added a rather robust clasp to finish off the whole story.
A little contribution to the May collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.

And another lovely green-and-beige combination...
