Red Twisted Oval Glass with Silver Wire Links

This necklace was a special request for a friend.  She wanted a red necklace and after looking through my collection, she picked these twisted glass beads.  I tried a different technique for this necklace.  I wanted the red to really stand out.  I didn't want to add a bunch of other colors or mix different shades of red, just to get the length for a standard beaded necklace.  The solution was to create wire links out of 20 gauge Artistic silver wire.  The only other beads I added were Swarovski Crystals in the same shade of red and silver rounds and spacers.  This gave the necklace a very airy look and you only see red!  She loved it!
