I decided that I want to work with the bone shaped beads and selected the color crystal as my second color.

When the beads arrived, my plans changed. My experience is that usually beads ordered sight unseen offer some element of surprise. I rarely have the opportunity to select beads in person so you would think I would be good at it by now. Surprise--the 4mm seafoam beads offered little contrast against the crystal bone beads. I decided to use the silver beads instead.

After I made all these switches the necklace came together quickly and I am thrilled with it. I love all of the silver in the necklace and the PEACE focal is beautiful.
