I have an extra long weekend, so I’ve had time to relax, get some chores done and create. I had these two small African metal collar pieces I got from Bead Bloom Finds. The owner sells her beautiful jewelry in her shop, Yucca Bloom.

I added some drops (green bloodstone?) and a few Javanese glass beads.

Necklace with two distressed, textured metal pieces in front, irregular green drops and small rust striped barrel spacers.

I really enjoy this drop shape and how it gives such texture and movement to the necklace. This piece turned out great!
