Another (just like the other) beachy-summery-sparkly necklace

A simple summer necklace using some black ice fishing line, sparkly aqua AB crystals, Karen Hill Tribe silver beads (some rounds, some tubes, some squares), hand knotted along with some gorgeous coin pearls, some mother of pearl rice shaped beads..... and joined with a simple nautical themed sterling silver toggle clasp with a large heart shaped mother of pearl shell focal

Swarovski, silver and pearls, oh my!

A light summery silver necklace with a little of everything in it.......some freshwater pearl buttons, some of those fabulous pearl coins, Swarovski crystal in two different shapes and three different sizes, some seed beads and a myriad of sterling silver beads - tiny Karen Hill Tribe rounds, liquid silver, daisy spacers, bali-inspired starfish..........
a REALLY fabulous sterling silver sun shaped toggle clasp (I mean, what would the beach be with no sun?!).... and a big beautiful Swarovski crystal starfish. Three strands of varying lengths captured in sterling silver cones on each end - perfect for any time of day or night.
