Inspired By...A Necklace

Inspired By has a wonderful inspiration piece this week.  I couldn't wait to get home and play with my paper! 

Isn't this just gorgeous!?  I could not resist going with both the colors and the beads/necklace components. 
Here is my inspired creation-

Metal and Bead Necklace

I used Whisper White, Soft Suede, and Tempting Turquoise cs for the card base.  The rolled beads area made out of Tempting Turquoise dsp and So Saffron cs.  The Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive beads are made by using a 1/2 inch circle punch and the circle punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack, and layering the circles with dimensionals.  These beads also have a layer of Crystal Effects on the top.  The large metal "coin" beads are made using gold and pewter ep, Versamark ink pad, Mixed Bunch stamp, and embossing folder.  The are punched out with a 1" circle punch. 
The metal beads and rolled beads are actually beaded onto 26g wire.

Here is a close up of the beads-
This was sooo much fun to make-one of those "let the creativity take you where ever it goes" kind of projects. 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  Have a blessed week and as a former co-worker used to say, "Happy Friday"!
