Beaded Dangle Necklace

I saw this necklace over at My Girlish Whims and loved it right away. (She has great tutorials for beautiful jewelry pieces--this is one of my favorite blogs to browse for inspiration.)  I ended up making two different necklaces for myself and one each for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  This necklace is great because you can switch around the colors to customize it to match an outfit.  The sparkly beads make it a little extra dressy.  The most challenging part was trying to find beads that were just the right size to space correctly across the chain.  I couldn't decide what I would wear more often, so I made one with gold chain and another with silver.  So happy with the way they turned out!
