I haven't taken my Montana/Egyptian blue one off since I made it. ;) I am addicted to them, and have been working on another one; gold this time, I think. I love using the 6mm chatons, they add just the right amount of sparkle, and I like the 2mm pearls because they're fun to work with. The 2mm crystals in the bezels are optional, and easily replaced with a size 11 seed bead. If you'd like a copy of this tutorial, it is available HERE.
A few people have asked if it was possible to use a 39SS 8mm chaton in place of the little 29SS 6mm ones, and so I had to have a try this morning and see how it worked. I thought I would share the results in case anyone else would like to try it that way, too. BOY it is shiny!!!!
Because of the change in chaton sizes, you will most likely need to leave off the extra embellished diamond before your clasp. I used Light Bronze #457L, Aqua Shimmer chatons, aqua AB 2mm and 4mm crystals and white pearls for my sample.
Before I go, I just want to remind everyone that my Annual Sale will still be happening this next weekend, as well - you can read more about that in my last blog post HERE. Thanks for reading!
