Faux turquoise set

Materials used: plastic, czech crystal, murano glass

Necklace length - 51cm

These are some nice faux turqoise beads of different shapes and sizes  highlighted by czech crystal beads, a couple of murano glass beads and with an agate bead in the center of the necklace.

The bracelet is based on steel memory beading wire like this one. It's one of the easiest ways to make multi-layered bracelets: simply string on the beads and finish off with a loop.

The only thing to keep in mind is the weight of the beads and the thickness of the wire. Thinner ones are more flexible and generally I prefer them, but they can't support several layers of big glass beads. Plastic, in this case - faux turqoise beads like these - will hold just fine.
