Beaded Chokers

I'm quite enjoying making these pretty beaded bead pendants, I've added dangles and I am using them as the centre piece for these velvet chokers.
I am really pleased with how these have turned out.

This one is made with various sizes of ivory glass pearls and sparkly silver-lined seed beads.
And a cute pair of earrings to go with it.

For this one I used hand made Indian glass oval beads in green with lime green silverlined seed beads and pale green pearlised seed beads. And I made some matching dangly earrings.

Black pearls and matte metallic seed beads, no earring yet though.

What do you think?
