Colors of a tropical sea come together in this simple yet playful necklace design. This design is a great idea for using up any leftover beads you may have. You'll love coming up with cool color palettes that speak to you. Learn how Cheri created her color palette and then dream up your own version of this necklace!
Please Note: Our designer Cheri used one of our recent Gift with Purchase bead mixes to create this necklace. Cheri separated the free Czech glass beads into separate color palettes. One color palette features purple, green and blue; the other color palette features yellow, pink and orange.
Then, Cheri added in even more beads for each separate color palette. She used Swarovski beads and more Czech glass beads.
She made the necklace in these instructions with the purple, green and blue beads, but she has another color palette for an entirely different creation. You can create your own color palette with any beads you may have on hand, whether they were gifts from us or if they are leftovers from other projects!

The warm copper accents in this necklace are cooled by small drops of turquoise-jade pearls, a refreshing combination perfect for fall fashion.
