More Under the Mast

After seeing Liz's dark silver 'Under the Mast' I couldn't resist, I had to do one more.....well two more actually, since this one is spoken for and I really really want to own one myself.



Fortunately it is a relatively easy bead. If you're comfortable with right angle weave that is. The back is done in size 15's which I realize is a challenge for some folks. But it's a small enough piece to be manageable with a little perseverance.

It is still a surprise to me how something so simple can be so effective. This necklace lets the beautiful crystal speak for itself and it's one of those pieces I enjoy wearing every day.

Unlike this one, which really can't be worn to the grocery store!



Not even by me who thinks sequins and crystals are perfectly acceptable wear for the morning walk!

Well, if anyone could wear it to the grocery store and make it look perfectly acceptable, it would be you! You raise the glitter bar wherever you go!

Is there something wrong with crystals and sequins on the morning walk :)! Actually, that necklace would look great at the grocery store. Grocery shopping would be less boring!

Well if you won't wear it to the grocery store I will ;) Orange and its friends are my absolute favorites! Under the mast is stunning too (can we make that in oranges?)

Both necklaces are gorgeous! I always tell people who say that you can't wear sparkly with jeans and a T---why not?!? More sparkles, the better!
Bead Happy!
