Silver and White Multi-Strand Necklaces

Blue Moon Silver and White

Global Nomad

I sent these back to school with College boy as gifts from me to two of his friends who like my stuff and have asked me about an Etsy shop ( someday!).

For both of these I used supplies from my Blue Moon Beads design team stash, along with some other beads I had on hand. Long before I was on the BMB design team, I was a huge fan and regularly picked up their products on my forays into the craft stores.

Blue Moon Beads Chain

I laid out the basics I would use. Silver and pearl chain, crystal cup chain, findings,

Blue Moon Butterflies and Insects

Global Nomad Pendant

I used the oval shaped jump rings from the Butterflies and Insects pack since they went with the elongated shape of this pendant piece. The pendant piece is from a BDT ( before design team) purchase. Using more oval jump rings, I attached wire wrapped beads to the pendant piece ( opalite and crystal)

I combined a couple types of chain and then added the pendant using more jump rings.

Blue Moon Silver and White

For the second necklace, I used a pre-strung BMB silver and pearl chain, antique silver chain and a pearlescent glass necklace, all joined together with a jump ring and again using the Butterflies and Insects jump rings, connected a pendant I made from opalite, crystal and a Blue Moon Beads cup chain pendant.

I figured this silver and white color combo was one that could be worn with anything.
