Golden Square crystal and wood beads necklace set

 I've had these wood beads sitting in my bead box for quite a while and though I have used them in earrings and love how light and elegant they look, have never used them in necklace before now. The other day when I was planning a necklace with some square golden beads, I realized that the wood beads would look good along with them. So I made this very light necklace set with this combination.

I have also added some tiny golden rondelle beads beside the square beads. The design is very simple and the necklace is very light and comfortable. It looks good with any kind of casual top or salwar kameez set.

Multicolored crystal and carnelian beads necklace

Quite a while ago, I made a multi colored two strand necklace that I somehow never got around to posting in this space. In that necklace I used a combination of cool blues, white, lavender and other shades in the blue family of colors for the necklace. Since then I haven't attempted any other multi colored necklaces. Finally last week I made this set with multicolored crystal beads. I used a combination of light lemon yellow crystal beads, golden brown beads, olive green beads and red crystal beads.  I also added some carnelian rice beads to the design.

This is a very simple design, but it turned out well and looks very elegant.  The colors in this necklace reminded me of the hues of autumn :) This set is good to dress up anything from a casual or dressy top to a saree or any other Indian dress. Since it has a lot of colors it is easy to match this with so many dresses too.

Multicolored Black Crystal Necklace Set

As I mentioned in my last post, recently I got a chance to make quite a few pieces of jewelry. This is one of the necklaces I made. This one is made with a multi colored black crystal, in the sense the crystal is not just black, it has different hues of pink and brown and other colors in it.

I am not sure the pictures shows the color of the crystal precisely but I really like these beads a lot. They are so pretty and these are the kind of beads that work with any color combination, so they are very versatile as well. In this necklace I used silver spacers to contrast with the black, but kept the design simple because the beads are so pretty as is, they do not need too much spacers and stuff to enhance them. This necklace is a nice way to dress up any casual top, tunic, salwar or even a saree. :)

Sandstone Necklace

Finally after quite a break from beading, I got a chance to start and finish a few necklaces recently. I have had some sandstone beads sitting in my bead box for quite a while now and I decided to make something with them. This necklace with both small and large sandstone beads is the result......

There is something about the sandstone that I feel works very well with ethnic clothes. And in this necklace with the combination of sandstone and golden beads, it definitely works well for all kinds of Indian dresses/ sarees.
