New Necklaces

These are the other necklaces I made on Wednesday night. This one uses big chunky pale aqua acrylic beads from my bargain bead stash, silver plated big link chain (not from the bargain stash!), chunky spacers Chris made, glass heart beads, and Swarovski. Yes, I know you are shocked! I wire wrapped the whole thing together with fine silver wire. Those of you who know me well, know how much (little) I like to wire wrap. Though with practice and lots of it, it is getting easier. Earrings are no problem, but this wire wrapping at both ends of the link is still a challenge.
This is a seed bead medallion that I stitched while teaching myself a spiral square stitch. The points on the edge have tiny 2.5 mm Swarovski bicone crystals and there is a large one in the center. There are also champagne and fuschia Swarovski on the silver beading wire.
What's next? Bracelets!
