So, part of this Challenge was to go back and use beads that I’ve been hanging onto for a long time.  In today’s project, I’ve definitely accomplished that.  These beautiful gold freshwater pearls were one of the very first strings of beads that I ever bought.  Same with these garnet chips.  I’ve had them for probably seven years!  I’ve used a lot of both over time, but the remainders have still been hanging around for a while.  I wanted to make a simple multi-strand necklace, so I went for this one.  It’s pretty unstructured, the pearls are added in at random, and between that and the random shapes of the garnet chips, it’s very organic-looking.  This will be an eye-catching necklace to wear!  I twisted the three strands together for the photo, but it also looks terrific with them untwisted as well.
