The three Graces dance together on a resin ivory and baby blue cameo surrounded by blue lined crystal, white, and ivory TOHO and Czech beads. Two Light Sapphire Swarovski rivolis are similarly netted in a lacy pattern. Swarovski pearls dangle from drops and the "chain" is finished with genuine lustrous potato pearls, freshwater pearls, and blue pearls surrounded by a lacy pattern of my own design. A potato pearl acts as a button clasp; the other end is a hoop toggle to slide the pearl through. I like the mixture of ivories and whites with light blues. Some would say that ivory and white shouldn't mix, but I think its fantastic.

It is also quite a lightweight necklace. I wore it to test the durability and I barely remembered I had it on most of the time! It did not pull my hair or move around a lot and everyone who saw me in the short amount of time I had it on made a comment about it!

This is my first shot at bead embroidery and detailed beadwork; suffice to say, I am very proud of myself. I wanted this necklace to be elegant and lacy and I feel I accomplished that. I also reaaally wanted to use pearls. It was difficult to achieve symmetry due to the natural variance in the shapes of the real pearls, but I think they add texture and character. And the crystals were an impulse buy but go really well with the cameo and pearls and also add a darker and sparklier element.
