beaded necklace

Jo Ann has had beads and findings on sale for about a week, and it prompted me to do some beading projects. Sometimes I want to work on a project I can do on the sofa in the living room. The living room is cooler than my craft room. It has been hot lately, so I haven't been spending much time in my craft room.

I made this necklace last week. I wore it to Pauline's retirement party, and she noticed it and liked it.

The striped glass beads are ones that I purchased at Michaels a couple of years ago. I liked them, but I had no idea what I was going to do with them. Then I started laying them out with black seed beads, and the project told me it needed gold beads. So, I purchased some gold filigree beads, and when they were placed between the glass beads the design felt right to me.
