I used mauve freshwater pearls; dark and light pink, white, cream, tan, and copper-brown glass pearls; round shell beads; and star-shaped silver spacer beads. All the beads are strung onto clear-colored plastic cord. I made a toggle clasp with heavy-duty silver-colored copper wire; a bit of the copper color peeks through the ends of the wire and goes well with the rest of the necklace. The clasp is attached using silver jump rings.
SPECIAL - This necklace is designed to layer with the other necklaces in the Lydia Collection, as shown in Photo #4. You can also use it as an extender - just mix and match the toggle clasps between this necklace and one of the other necklaces to make a longer necklace. You can always wear it alone as an elegant pearl necklace, too.
The Lydia Collection was created to have several necklaces and earrings working together in harmony as a distinctive set. Glass pearls in white, cream, copper, pink, rose, and rich chocolate brown set the stage for leaf-shaped mother-of-pearl beads, shell tusks, and chunky acrylic beads. The pieces are accented with tiny white shell beads, freshwater pearls, and pops of silver. Mix, match, and layer to your heart's content.
