I have been experimenting with 2 types of bead bar necklaces. Here are are my most recent creations. I really like to use the small faceted beads that sparkle in the sunlight. From top to bottom you will see different gemstones: blue goldstone, amethyst (faceted), tiger's eye, garnet (faceted) and pyrite (faceted). This style of bead bar has gold filled accent beads which create a continuity with the gold filled chain. Check out my Etsy Store if you would like one of these necklaces.
