The story behind the necklace -- none of the beads were supposed to be put into ONE project. I bought them at a local bead store, and was filling up little baggies of this and that, and when I got home, I up-ended my shopping bag on the table and lo and behold, the colors just looked terrific together. Totally not what I had planned, but so much better than what I had planned.
The photo in the magazine is a little dark, so here's another for you:
The chain is copper, and the glass is all Czech (with some yellow Japanese miracle beads tossed in) -- purples and yellow and peach and bronze. I loved how the colors came together, and I love the texture, and cha-cha necklaces (and bracelets!) are my favorite anyway.
