This necklace and earrings set combines TierraCast charms and beads in copper and gold with glittering Swarovski crystal bicones to create a warm and welcoming style. Cynthia made this set during a Facebook Live Design Challenge. Our Facebook Live Design Challenge videos feature Artbeads Chief Jewelry Designer Cynthia making jewelry with beads picked out by Becky. The beads she used for these pieces are included in our Golden Age Color Party. Watch Cynthia design with this mix on Facebook.
