Something Blue

I bought the tutorial on doing the Cool Cubes necklace from the Interweave store. It was hard, but a lot of fun! Especially considering I have dozens of square glass beads in every color imaginable. After creating the cubes using 3 different colors of aqua/blue, I decided I didn't want to make the exact same thing as in the tutorial. So I combined all 3 of my current disciplines, beading, wire wrap and chainmaille, to create something more unique. I made sterling silver byzantine links and wired up Swarovski crystals along with the beaded cubes. Here's what I wound up with.

I then decided to create matching earrings and luckily had Swarovski drops in the right color. Amazing how some things work out isn't it?

This was a blast to make and I can't wait to make these cube again... perhaps with fall colors?
