Many ideas ran through my mind about how to use the beads and what to make.
Do I use dark green beads?
Do I use light colored beads?
Do I use light colored beads with light blue and dark blue beads?
After deciding which beads to use, I then had to decide how I wanted to use the beads. Do I use them in a horizontal row or do I use them in a vertical row?
I made the decision to use them in a vertical row but I did this in a different manner than what you might expect.
I added small lobster claw clasps to two of the beads and to the bail that the beads will hang from. You can hang them in a variety of designs. You can hang one bead, two beads or all three beads.
I decided to string the light colored beads with small accent beads with gold spacers. I used a bail that I attached a small lobster claw clasp to so that the Component of the Month could be added.
Here is the finished necklace with the Component of the Month attached. I also made matching earrings.
Here are a couple of pictures to show how the Component can be changed.
