Well, right now it's just going to be one necklace.  But, I've been trying to finish projects that have been sitting on my table for a while.  For some reason most of them are necklaces and some of them, like the one in this post, only needed a clasp!  But, time flies and my best efforts at finishing things get pushed aside by new projects, and this time of year, the garden! 

Anyway, here is the first of the finished necklaces.

It's a Russian spiral that uses bugles.  My friend Kathy, owner of Bead Soup, came up with it.  Her's was not assymetrical, this one is.  It uses 3mm bugles and 5mm bugles and it has 3mm and 4mm crystals randomly placed in the larger area.  I love that!  It was a fun necklace to make, and like all Russian spiral pieces, it worked up quickly.  Unless I'm the one making it, in which case it sat for a month or more needing the last inch or two stitched and then sat another month waiting for it's clasp!!  But, it's finished now and I've worn it, and I love it!

There are more "finally finished" necklaces, but that will be for another post.  Stay tuned!

Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy your day!


  1. Hi Maryanne,
    I love this necklace it is so bright and cheerful with the lime green and cobalt blue bugles and I like how you used the crystals for added Bling!

  2. What a fun design, and awesome colors!

    I have two shoeboxes of projects that I need to finish. I think that's true of a lot of jewelry makers -- maybe we need a Finish That Stuff challenge!

  3. What a wonderful color combination! Love the blue with the green....I wish I could work with seed beads...the effect is juat gorgeous!

  4. Oooh! This came out gorgeous Maryanne! I love the colors!!!
