New clustered beads necklaces

I’ve got a thing about clusters of small beads at the moment – I just think they look so pretty! If you remember, I made some Christmas decorations which were rings of clustered beads last year. I’ve been working on and off on some necklaces using this clustered bead technique for ages, and I’ve finally got them up in the Little Koo Etsy shop!

The central part of each necklace is made from small beads wrapped around a stiff wire semi-circle, hung on a sterling silver chain. These designs have a little sparkle from the clear Swarovski crystals interspersed with pearls, gemstones and tiny gold seed bead accents. So far, this necklace is available in two colours – mint green and pale pink. The mint green design features amazonite beads, while the pale pink design uses strawberry quartz.

The amazonite necklace can be found here

…while the strawberry quartz necklace can be found here.

I’m thinking of making some earrings to match, so watch this space!

What do you think? Is this a style that you like too? Would you like to see this design in a different colour?

Thanks for reading!

The Little Koo sale ends on Friday!

Happy New Year! Did you have a good Christmas? Ours was good, fairly quiet and short (in Hong Kong you only get Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day off work) but a fun time nonetheless. Here’s a Christmassy picture of the twins in Santa hats for you.

Anyway, this is just a quick one to remind you that the Little Koo post-Christmas sale is now on, but it finishes on Friday so you have just a couple of days to enjoy at least 30% off everything!
