These beaded beads are so lovely, I wanted a design that would allow them to stand out front and center. Going with large crystal rondelles allows the beads to speak for themselves. I chose a color pallette that was soft and elegant. The necklace is fairly short which allows it to be worn with a princess neckline. This is the first bead contest I have entered and I'm glad I did so given I really learned a lot and am pleased with the outcome.
