Snow & Ice Sparkle!
Here is another bit of sparkle and bling jewelry! It looks great with dress clothes and with jeans in summer or winter. I like to wear pieces like this with my snow man and snow flake tops in winter yet these are also reminiscent of the beach too! Both of these pieces were strung using stainless steel bead wire. The components are sterling silver beads, sterling spacers, glass druk beads and Swarovski crystal bi cone beads. The square silver and glass components are not sterling but I have worn this type of bead for several years and they still look great. The pieces were finished off with silver crimp beads.
The Pendants work up quickly and make great gifts. They also have silver spacer beads in them where the wire goes from two separate beads into one bead. Take this same piece and attach it to a pair of leaver back earrings for a complete matching set. The other photo shows a second pendant made just a little bit differently from the blue pendant. Use your imagination and see what you can come up with! Happy beading!
