Midnight Blooms

This necklace is a variation of Jennifer Tough's "Midnight Blooms" design from the Beadfx Inspirations collection. While the smaller blooms are made with 4mm Swarovski crystals, I made a focal bead by combining a larger, clear crystal with the smaller crystals on each wire wrap. I like having the two different sizes of "blooms".

As Jen says in her description, it's a very dainty look for a bracelet but I think it works well as a necklace too. You can't tell from the photo but it hangs very nicely when it's on your neck. I just might have to keep this one for myself!

Of course, the look would not be complete without a couple more "blooms" hanging from your earlobes.
