This was an exercise in using the same bead shape in different color combos. I've used this shape before, as part of a mixed lot; this was the first time I chose specific colors to create the same necklace in different colors. The necklaces are long enough to go around the neck twice or three times.
I started with black, clear, and silver - easy to wear dressed up or down.
Then I went to lavenders and blues, with just a touch of olive green - colors for a blond or redhead.
Turquoise and orange, strung in blocks of color - strictly summer!
And red-orange beads alternated with all sorts of colors - probably my favorite in the bunch!
