First steps...

This is one of the first necklaces I have ever made: two strings of mixed seed-beeds, one string of peridot chips and a string of mixed large beads. And what a mix it was! Acrylic beads mixed with glass, dyed freshwater pearls, metal and its plastic imitation and semi-precious gemstones. I thought it might be fun to try out different materials and textures, and I think it went quite well.


But I have also discovered another thing - I love working with glass beads! There is something magical about those... Something about their cool, shiny surface and the weight of the string in your hand...
I never thought that I will fall for mixing glass with semi-precious gems. But c'mon, I'm not a jeweler, I am a beader! ;) And I like it!
