Butterfly Gemstone Necklace

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to show you one of my jewellery makes from my new start in jewellery making. I obviously had to buy the butterfly charm ;-) I based my colours around the pendant so used Citrine, Goldstone and Quartz and Tigers Eye.
I love Semi precious stones because of their individual look, just look at the close up below, you can see the tiny flecks of Gold in the Goldstone beads, The different colours in the Tigers eye and the cracked look inside the Citrine beads.

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
