Compass Necklaces

I recently saw someone wearing beads in a color combination like this - lots of neutral browns, whites, and blacks with a couple of pops of green, red, and light blue. I wouldn't have imagined these colors would work together, but I think they really do. Not my typical colors - but I love them. I'm calling this my "compass" necklace because the colors will let me go in a lot of different directions in how I match it with my clothing.


I made a short and longer version so I could mix and match. I can even hook the 2 necklaces together to make one long strand.

And here is the "hanging around" webcam view.

I shall resist :) If I did start beading again, I wouldn't be able to wear it, since a certain little boy likes to touch, pull, and try to eat whatever I'm wearing :(
