Spirals and Knots - Not for sale

Sometimes even the simplest technique can create stunning results.

This is one of my favorite strung necklaces. The pendant is an engraved shell by Heidi Viau of Lillypilly designs. I wanted a necklace using that pendant to go with a skirt that it matches perfectly, so off I went into the bead room the find the perfect accents for it. First, some pewter Celtic beads that my stepmother-in-law gave me for the holidays a few years ago. Then some smoke topaz Swarovski crystals. Then a few colors and sizes of Czech firepolished glass.

The end result is a necklace that has a very eye-pleasingly harmonious look. The beads echo not just the color of the focal, but the theme too (thanks to the cool Celtic beads). I really like the two styles of dappled Czech beads, which I think give it a sort of antiqued look.

The nice thing about Lillypilly pendants is that since they're flat and thin, they're so lightweight. A glass pendant the same size as this would be really heavy and overwhelming on me, but the shell is just right!
