Shades of Grey

by: Jennifer Tough

Need something quick for a dinner party over the holidays?  Here's a project using exquisite materials that you can whip up in less than hour. Grey is of course timeless, understated, but incredibly beautiful - especially with these fabulous beads! Tourmalated Quartz, and Crystal Satin Swarovski's - Can't go wrong really...

It turns out tourmalted quartz is supposed to be quite lucky...I think I'll wear this while buying a lotto max ticket - and rub it when they do the draw - I'll let you know how that turns out ;->

The clasp steals the show - Wear it up front!

I do apologize for the lack-luster photography. I'm quite challenged when trying to photograph greys - this necklace is far more sparkly in person.
