What do these three brand-spanking-new necklaces have in common? Teeny tiny silver-tone balls! Look closely and you'll see them alternated with faceted glass beads, acrylic pearls, and rhinestone sliders on each piece. I bought them awhile ago and only just started using them. I thought of them as fillers, or in the case of the rhinestone sliders, as little anchors (they tend to slip and slide without other beads between them), but was amazed by the dimension they lent to each piece. And they're versatile, too, as evidenced here in the company of a statement pendant, candy brights, and smoky neutrals. Stay tuned to see how many other designs I can wrangle out of them!

Thanks! Sometimes I'm afraid to wear them for fear of scuffing their fantasticness.

Love the first bag and the multi colour choker.

Thanks! I bought the bag on Etsy; it's even nicer in person and very well made.
