I made a necklace similar to this one back in June of 2012. You can see it here.
I really liked the texture and how it sat just below the collar bone. So the other day I decided to make something just about like it but of course had to make some beads first. I just got it all finished up.
I of course made a pair of earrings to go with it. I so love the red and black and for some reason these earrings feel sort of Oriental to me.
