Two necklaces: finished

This was a commissioned piece. A request for a silver beach rock necklace with just a few beach stones added.

The piece below is one I started as soon as I drilled some of the English sea glass. I LOVE how well the colors combined with the flame worked green glass beads made by Sue Kennedy. I love it so much that as soon as I post this I’m going right to her Etsy site to see if she still has the other focal bead I’ve been eying! (Actually, it’s gone. I bought it before posting. Didn’t want to have any regrets.)

I am so happy with how the frostiness of this bead by Sue combines with the natural frosty finish of the hundred year old sea glass. I like the dichotomy of being able to combine something so old with something so new in a piece. ( I also like using the word dichotomy in reference to a necklace.)

There are two of Sue’s beads in this necklace. Can you spot the other one?                                                                                     Note to self: Time to make more PMC toggle clasps.
