I did an alternating pattern of the green porcelain beads with some silver stardust beads in two different sizes and then used one of the heart beads as a focal component. Once done the wire was crimped to create a loop on each end, and the crimp was covered with a gunmetal crimp cover. I thought that the gunmetal tone went better with this darker or more muted color scheme. To finish off the piece I took two identical lengths of the gunmetal chain that I had chosen, and then attached it to the loops on the wire. The last touch was to add the toggle clasp.
This necklace can be both casual and more formal. The style is pretty versatile, and the stardust beads give it a bit of sparkle that can work with more formal looks. Plus, the friend I made this for now has a matching set of necklace and bracelet that can work with many different outfits and settings.
