One great way to add a lot of individuality to necklace designs is to work with many strands. They do not have to be bead woven or linked together in any way except at the clasp. Each necklace can be worn on its own - nothing wrong with that. But when they are clustered together like Cindy's creation here, the design quality just moves up several notches.

Cindy's main necklace has the larger beads in peridot greens, with shades of pale pink/purple and touches of topaz. Her secondary necklaces consisted of one with just gold seed beads alternating with gold bugles and the other with bronze variations. It seems all so easy but the trick is to choose the right beads in the right colours to go together.
