Beaded Bead Necklace and Earrings

I stitched up some beaded beads (in 2 different sizes) using champagne freshwater pearls, denim blue Swarovski crystals, blue and bronze seed beads, and Picasso blue Czech glass:

I like the way they look with Vintaj Natural Brass, so I used that for the chain and earwires.

This particular beaded bead is fully reversible: it looks identical on each side. I am still having a little issue with the term "beaded bead", though, as this is the second beaded bead I've worked with that doesn't have holes for stringing. For this one, I stitched seed bead loops for hanging.

And look: I figured out how to get one of those artsy, out of focus jewelry porn shots that are so prevalent on Etsy:

The earrings and necklace are available separately in my Etsy shop.

Love the combination of champagne pearls and Vintaj chain. That one's going in my Idea Book! The denim and bronze make them great pieces heading into Fall.
