Skill LevelBeginner
TechniqueSimple Stringing

Druzy beads are so special and sometimes you don't want to use them all up at the back of a necklace. I used chain to finish this piece, so I could save some druzies for other projects.

If you want to use your specialty beads sparingly, there are other options for finishing your design. Cynthia demonstrates how chain can make a wonderful option for finishing looks in this necklace design. She paired chain with Dakota Stones druzy beads and Czech glass. You can see more ideas for how to finish jewelry when you run out of beads in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
