Bead Soup Re-Vamp!

It's the middle of November, what a perfect time to have bright and beautiful jewelry to gaze upon!  I was the "left over" in pairing up, so Lori Anderson kindly took me on as her second partner.  She sent me a breezy, colorful necklace that I told her I would've worn to a beach wedding in Maui!  Here it is -

There was a lot to work with.  In order to be "me", I selected only 2 of the components, the fabulous silver clasp and the fun keishi pearls.  Lori also sent extras, and I discovered that the lampwork beads that were included had a colorful spot that coordinated with the pearls, although the photo doesn't really emphasize that.

This is the secondary focal and I used the clasp as the main focal.

Isn't it spectacular!!  The silver brings out the silvery-gray pearls very nicely.  I also added peach and gray potato pearls and one more of the lampwork beads.

Here is another view, it can be worn in several positions.
Thanks, Lori, for being a generous partner and for organizing!
