Sweetheart Mint Necklace
Going through my stuff looking for something, I found this heart link chain that I must have bought for last Valentine's Day and did nothing with. I pulled it out and paired it with these tiny Czech glass beads. The beads were used for an earring design that I don't sell anymore, so I had a few different color pinks, some red and a delicious iridescent green. The beads are clustered at the center and then sprinkled up the rest of the chain. It's a little different for me - a beaded chain - and it's also longer than I usually make at just over 24". The finishing touch was the decision to oxidize it which really makes the little spots of color pop. I think it would be perfect for that little black or red Valentine's dress. I call it Sweetheart Mint Necklace and it's currently available in my Etsy with free shipping (in the US only).
