Beaded statement necklace with earrings for New Year's Eve

The good folks at Prima Bead sent me a selection of beads to make a statement necklace that one could wear on New Year's Eve. I think this piece would look bold and fabulous over a solid shell or sweater. For those who prefer their necklines to plunge, it would also hang nicely against the skin betwixt the girls, tee hee!

I added three hand-blown clear glass beads from my stash, as well as a black glass buckle-style focal bead. The necklace is strung on a .015 nylon-coated stainless steel wire cable. I really like the pop of red, too!
