I've just been looking through pictures of Hollywood celebrities at last weekend's Academy Awards ceremony. There were many clad in strapless gowns but surprisingly few jewelry pieces to set off the outfits. One example is Angelina Jolie who wore only earrings and a ring.

And then there was Amy Adams. She went with what was my favorite Oscar night jewelry - a colorful collar style necklace which really stood out and complimented her strapless gown. This is one woman who is not afraid of color!

I really think this necklace is inspirational especially for the accomplished beadworkers amongst you! However, if beadwork is not your forte, try stringing side drilled beads in tiers to form the collar. Check out my past post on this ancient Egyptian collar and you'll see what I mean!
