Druzy and Beady Links

Pink Druzy Necklace

Druzy seems to continue its popularity and I think the little pieces of gold trimmed loveliness are just wonderful. Sometimes I think all a piece of druzy needs is a simple chain. This time, I wanted to do more. I chose fresh water pearls in a purple gray color with hints of pink that accent the center stone.

I then transitioned to long ebony wood twist beads with the pearls interspersed. I think the wood grounds the piece. I have several other pieces of druzy to play with. Some have one link and others have two like this piece above. We’ll see what comes next.

Speaking of goodness, here are some beady links:

  1. Great design. I have never thought of combining wood with pearls but it’s a wonderful idea.
