Blog Hop Reveal - Lorelei Eurto's Challenge

I barely got into this one as I posted before.  But I am happy that I managed to finish my necklace and it was a challenge to work with the white chain.  I am still thinking how to use the leftover chain in another project.

My additions are the copper chain, the white wholite stones and my handmade clasp.  I am thinking of putting a clasp on each strand to make it a 6 in 1 necklace, that can be worn separately or using any of the combinations.

I couldn't find the New Jade rounds in Michael's, luckily I had some Green Aventurine in my stash.  I also had big white pearls, so no need to buy those either.  The other component from the kit I provided from my stash were the green pearls. 

From the original kit I bought the carved wood squares, the carved cinnabars brown and white, and the white chain.

It was quite challenging for me to work with the color palette.  I would have never included white in the color combo, but glad I took the challenge.

  14. Thank you all! I wore my necklace yesterday and it's a keeper. I wore a brown turtle neck top. The white chain looked just gorgeous on top of the brown. I also had a white jacket that sealed the deal.
