dreamy snowflake , soutache and fur necklace

this challenge was so much fun
i had so many ideas , it was hard to be limited to just one
fortunately the box of mixed beads was
 more than enough to create several projects
(see my northern lights wire necklace here)

i was so excited to work with fur for the first time
and the soutache cord was a wonderful way to feature these lovely beads
they come in a variety of color
see all the artists work here

northern lights beaded and wire necklace

i always love a challenge
my friend carmi  sent me these fabulous mixed beads
from john bead
12 artists where give a different color and asked to create something
see all the fabulous creations here
there are a variety of beads and i had tons leftover
so i worked on second set
and then some!

shell necklace part two

since my october post of my shell and pearl necklace
i've worked on a few more versions
i can't decide which one i like best 
the shell leaves i found at the john bead outlet
 reminded me of wings
so i expanded on the last few ideas

this one just took on a life of its own
i think it would be great for a champagne color wedding
