That being said, I'll present you a necklace this time. I have been working mostly with paper for the past weeks and months, creating cards and other paper projects, and I really felt like doing something "non-paper" for a change. I also had a couple of leftover beads that I couldn't use otherwise, and I figured I'd just try to arrange them into something meaningful. I took a store-bought necklace base, and started threading random beads on its strings, as well as lots of crimp beads to keep them in place. I tried to make sure that I didn't repeat the shapes and colours too often, but other than that, the arrangement is completely random. Once I was satisfied with the layout, I fixed the beads with crimp beads, and that's about it. The necklace consists of numerous green beads of different shades and sizes, which I hope will inspire you to use green in your own projects. The non-green elements I used are mainly translucent beads and small arrangements of white pearls, which give a little more dynamic to the creation. Another element is the silver clasp with a heart pendant, which enables you to adjust the length of the necklace.
In the end, I think it was fun to change my crafting medium for a bit. The necklace seems to be perfect for spring and summer days, as it resembles all the greenery that can be found in nature right now.
I also like how it looks very airy due to all the "empty" space between the beads - I never created a necklace like this, but I really like how it turned out.
