Bright Star by Jamie Hogsett10:52 AM
The 5mm smokey quartz faceted discs and 12mm septarium coins in this necklace were great finds in the Soft Flex booth at the Santa Fe show a few weeks back. By simply adding a moss green size 15 seed bead between after each bead strung, the gradation of the smokey quartz discs really stands out. This is a great necklace for getting the popular layered look - I can picture it stacked up with my diamond pendant and my long dog-tag/charm necklace.
I especially love the little box clasp with the star on it. It's a clasp that will likely slide down to the side or front of the piece, which is perfectly okay in this case. Soft Flex Extreme wire in 925 Sterling Silver, 2mm crimp tubes, and 3mm crimp covers are the only other materials needed to make this simple piece.
