Two Strand Necklace with Green Shell, White Jade, Crystal and Cats Eye bead and Matching Earrings

Image Description
This one of a kind necklace is wire strung. This means that a few beads are put on short pieces of thick metal wire and then connected together. I use two round jump rings between each section which not only makes it stronger but it also give the necklace a more intricate handmade look. This necklace is 17 inches long, has a 2 1/2 inch extension chain with a small green bead at the end, and a lobster style clasp. This two strand necklace has a tear drop shaped green mother of pearl shell beads, with a clear Swarovski crystal bead above it, and a small round cats eye at the top of each of the 7 1 1/4 inch dangling sections that hang in the center of the outer strand. The rest of this strand is made matching sections with a round green, white and light orange cat’s eye bead in the center, with a smaller round white jade bead on each side and extra small silver seed beads at each end. The inner section is made of section with either a large round or a long skinny green cat’s eye bead with a round white jade bead on each side of it and extra small silver seed beads at each end. The matching earrings are made using the same beads that were used in the necklace. The earrings start with a small round white jade bead with a round multi color (green white and orange) cats eye bead below it, a clear Swarovski crystal next and a green tear drop shaped shell bead at the bottom. Between all of the beads are small silver seed beads. The earrings are 1/2 and inch wide and 1 1/2 inches long plus the length of the surgical steel fish hook style earring wires (about 3/4 of an inch).
