Hard Candy--Pink Necklace

Just added to my shop this evening, and created this afternoon!

I found these tasty little pink beads at Michael's, as well as a set of cerulean blue ones, too! I couldn't figure out what to do with them, and I decided that simple was the way to go.

I made a square frame, added a bail, and then attached the bead with a piece of wire coiled around the frame. I suspended it from copper chain and added an S-clasp.

I'm pleased with the result, because it's playful and fun because of the bead, but it can be dressed up, too.

If you get a chance, check it out in my shop. I was also wondering, do you like the main photo better than photo #2, or should I list photo #2 first? I prefer to go with a more funky photo, but sometimes I fear that it might be too closeup or abstract for someone to be able to determine what it is.

If you feel like giving some feedback, leave a comment and let me know.

i'd go with photo 2 or 3 Chels... the super close up is hard to figure out.
I like the overall design on this piece, the square with the bead suspended is unusual. I'm not crazy about the bead, but that's a personal preference.

Thanks dahling...yeah I just asked Mike which one he liked better, and he said definitely go with the 2nd one...so I switched 'em up for now.

Understandable on the bead...pink is tricky. Folks either like it or don't like it. I don't mind pink right now b/c it coordinates with the color of my hair (black with red LOL).

Oh...bit confused now re: the photos because I think you may have switched them around already. The one you have now as the main photo represents the piece really well I think. & it's a very nice piece at that! Such a sweet shade of pink :)
