I got these wonderful black beads (one strand) and Alice in wonderland rabbit from Firemountaingems.com last year both from blue moon beads and for a dollar each. I used freshwater pearls and black faceted rondelles.
upclose, I love it!
I got all of these beads from michaels, the silver pieces were from a bracelet I bought at the dollar store lol the cabochon I think is onyx or agate, it came in a cabochon mix set, and the backing is also from firemountaingems.com
This floral pendant I bought at AC Moore along with those hanging teardrop shaped beads. The big glass teardrops and the silver pieces were both from an old bracelet I got for a buck in my neighborhood and I wanted to incorporate it here since it echoed the leaves of the pendant.
Another necklace similar to the other black one, except that the stone is hematite
