This is a necklace I made to go with my fabulous red velvet holiday dress. The little one in the center is the matching bracelet. Both are red, purple & clear glass. They're made by alternating rings with beads strung on wire.
These are run-of-the-mill glass beads, but they're quite big. That, combined with the larger gauge wire I used, makes this a rather heavy, but sturdy, piece.
