Giveaway – Blue Bayou Necklace

Greetings! It’s so nice to “see” you!

Welcome to my giveaway. This week, I have a very pretty choker-style necklace. 🙂

Sometimes a single bead is so beautiful that it can almost stand on its own. When incorporating it into jewelry, you want to be careful to create a simple backdrop so that the bead can take center stage. That’s how I felt about this exquisite vintage glass bead, which was made in Czechoslovakia.

It’s a mouthwatering shade of sapphire blue with a pastel flash of aurora borealis that takes my breath away. The bead is a bold 14mm in size and because it was machine-cut, the faceting is gorgeous! I decided to make a simple, uncluttered necklace to highlight this vintage bead and I used tiny Sapphire AB glass seed beads with Swarovski crystal accents.

Measurements: 18 inches in length.
