I got these faux amber graduated lucite beads. I’ve always liked faux amber (and real amber). I used all but the smallest size of rounds in this necklace.
I used multi-color metal spacers between beads since they had larger holes that slid right over the knotted waxed linen I originally tried. One thing I like about lucite is that the beads can be big for a chunkier look, but they are super light. They are a comfortable weight and also stay cooler in warmer weather.
