Monochrome Iris Card and a Neutral Gemstone Necklace

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a couple of creations to show you this time, a monochrome Iris card and a Neutral Gemstone Necklace. 
I shall start with the card, for this creation I used an Iris stamp from Penny Black stamped with Memento Paris Dusk ink onto die cut cardstock. I then made a panel below this image as a mat-with patterned paper and white cardstock. I then covered my card with a white paper with a blue pattern, and used the same patterned paper from my mat as a border on the card. I then added a dome greeting matted onto patterned paper and white card like the image. Lastly I added a ribbon bow.
I was asked to make a neutral coloured gemstone necklace for a friend so here is my effort. Obviously the beads being gemstones each bead differs which I love-you get such different looks even within the same creation. I used Labradorite, Rutilated Quartz in two sizes, clear bicones and white pearls.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! 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. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
