Today I decided to put together a necklace with beads from Michael's and others from my stash. Colors I decided to use where beads in blacks and golds. I also reused a focal piece from another piece I took apart.
Here is what I started with.
As I was stringing the beads I decided to use small black seed beads between the black beads and any other beads that didn't have a spacer. I also added a few other black beads in different shapes to add interest.
Here is the piece half way through with the focal piece strung.
And the finished piece.
