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!
