Beaded Links by Kristen Stevens

Here is the pair I chose for this month’s challenge:

Beded links in dark blue

Terra Pearl Blue Beaded Links

This is actually the second time I have used Kristen links in this color, but I was delighted to give it a go another time!  I made these earrings a couple of months ago and they are available in my shop.

Montana Blues Earrings

.I purposely picked the same color this month, because I really love it!  However, I didn’t want to make earrings again.  I had this necklace started on my work table.  I liked the front part of it, that you can see below, but I was dissatisfied with the back of the necklace. The blue raven pendant is by Oh! Sullivan Studio, the handmade ceramic beads are from Gaea and White Clover Kiln.  There are also some recycled glass beads and various other goodies that are all knotted on Irish waxed linen.

Blue Raven Necklace 3 cropped, lightenedWhen I saw the unfinished Blue Raven Necklace sitting on my table this week, I realized that Kristen’s beaded links would make a perfect transitional point from a beaded section of the necklace to chain in the back, and the colors were perfect.  I love serendipity like that!  So here’s my transformed necklace.  I love it now!

  1. I love both the earrings and the necklace. You chose the perfect beads for the earrings-love those colors. The blue raven pendant is gorgeous and is really highlighted by the beads and waxed linen you selected. (I have those same blue Czech glass coins.) Kristen’s links do indeed provide a lovely transition to the chain. You have such a pleasing balance in your arrangement of beads. Bravo!

I love comments! Please share your thoughts.
