#30daybeadchallenge Day 4 Reveal

Challenge: String a sparkly masterpiece using Swarovski Crystal Bicones:

The only way this piece actually happened was the fact that I inherited my Aunt's bead collection last year and had all these crystals on hand! They are not normally something I tend to buy- they are expensive although quite beautiful!

I tried to create something a bit more modern with them- usually I see designs using Crystals that tend to be over the top, formal- wedding jewelry even.

I think this piece turned out perfectly. I used some cool chain I got from a friend recently that I believe might be from my favorite chain supplier, AD Adornments.  I used beading wire to string rings of crystals and strung through the chain links.
