New necklace

This was the simplest necklace I have ever made but I love it. I bought some Hill Tribe Silver starfish in varying sizes and a pair of earrings.

I had planned on using pearls but did not have as many as I wanted and just was not happy with the look. I went through my stash and found a hank of these beautiful pastel glass tube beads. I held them up to the starfish and loved the look. So, I attached the starfish to one strand, tied the strands together, and used Bali Silver cones to hide the knots. I then straightened the ear wires on the earrings and added two beads to each wire then bent back into place. So now the earrings match the necklace. There is a lot of silver on this necklace, but I love the simplicity of it. I call the piece Stars of the Sea.


  1. You know what I just realized...I have a pair of earrings in my store using those same pastel tube beads! LOL I LOVE how they look with the starfish, fun yet elegant!!!
