Made this set the other day. Jade beads, crystal beads, antique caps with wooden leaves. The necklace I put on a satin ribbon.
I love doing jewelry and if you have a variety of beads it's a really quick way to make a matching set for every outfit you have.
I love shopping at Fire Mountain Gems online.
They have the largest varieties I have found on the web and I think the prices are good. But I do shop beads and findings at Walmart as well as JoAnn Fabrics and Michael's. Walmart just recently got in a new shipment and they have some striking pieces right now.
