The gown I chose is a simple yet very elegant and complimenting black one-shoulder dress, with a long slit on one side, and a strip of dark beads on the other side. It's by Laundry by Shelli Segal and you can see it here or here. The thing I love about statement necklaces is that they can make a simple outfit look gorgeous and spice it up. This is exactly what I was looking for.
It was a fun challenge! As you can see from my Etsy shop, I don't normally make over-the-top jewelry, but it was great for me to try something new and exciting to see the final result! I made a couple of trips to my local beads store and had to do some intense work to finish in time for my vacation, but the final result was so worth it. I was able to make a full set of earrings, bracelet, and the necklace.
I've got lots of supplies left over and will be making some of these for my shop, so stay tuned for the new listings!
