For Christmas '09, my mom bought me some lovely beads. She gave me two strands of the same type of glass beads, in two different shapes: round and oval. They have beautiful variegation and have shades of blue, green, amber and everything in between. I have had them in my collection for a while and have been trying to think of the best way to use them together.
I chose to make a double strand necklace that doubles as a long necklace (24 inches). The short strand uses the round beads alone and the longer strand uses the oval beads with Celtic inspired connectors.
I am very happy with the versatile result and I can't wait for my mom to see it!
