Originally, this was going to be a single pendant on a thong but when I noticed that my new set of made-in-Alaska beads matched the pendant, I decided to use them and some other beads as well. I also figured that this needed to be turned into a set. Since there were only four of the colorful beads, I split them up between necklace and earrings.
It was basically a metallic design theme, with silver, gold, copper, and metallic purple being used, and I liked the pieces better after a few design tweaks. All beads and the toggle closure were attached with purple coated wire and the thong is black imitation suede.
