I just grabbed handfulls of my leftover pinks, blues, whites, some pearls, used headpins and put them on this heavy silver chain. Its 40 inches long, can be doubled

Most of us have more beads than we can work with in a lifetime. I know I do. I made these necklaces out of leftover beads.

I have a shoe box of leftovers and so I dug out all the orange, and all the pinks, blues etc. and put them in separate containers. Then I tried to get creative and these are what i came up with.

I also added dangley beads to the necklace and have sold several already. Most of them are 35 or so inches long.

The silver one with pink and blues and white is a 40 inch chain piece of chain. I am trying to use up my beads instead of buying more. Any comments and or ideas for color combinations would be welcomed.
