I recently made this necklace and matching earrings as a gift for my mother. I found the beautiful lined faceted crystal beads with the little flowers at Michaels, along with the leaves and accent beads. I came up with the design fairly quickly, but then stalled while I figured out how I wanted to string it. After making the focal dangle, I decided to create lots of beaded links to put it together.
It's been fun to dive back into making jewelry again. There are so many wonderful tutorials out there and lots of pretty beads!
