Think outside the box when it comes to jewelry design with fun links, unique beads and other stand-out elements. Cynthia combined Matubo and Rulla beads in a flat herringbone focal, and used leather and trendy brass components as a backdrop for the beads. The result is a cool necklace that comes together effortlessly!
