After using those crimp beads it struck me that although I'd bought a lot of jewellery findings and beads but I hadn't actually made anything. (Well they look so nice in the box.) So today I made a necklace. The gorgeous bird with the diamanté chest was my starting point. It came from a pair of earrings that were never worn. I matched it with clear and blue crystal beads and Tibetan silver spacer beads. I also made a pair of earrings using the Tibetan silver spacers and a couple of pretty 'European bracelet' type beads.
