The Best of FB Live...The Gatsby Necklace

Happy Wednesday! As you know, we're taking a summer break from FB Lives and Free Tip Fridays and will be re-posting some old faves with some new ideas instead.

Today we're going back to this gorgeous three-strand necklace, The Gatsby Necklace. We created a sample in all whites for the show, and on air showed off an all-black palette. So today I thought I'd share some colorful palettes but keep with the 20s theme...pearls, glass, and decadence. I can't wait to see what you create...share in our FB Group, please! Enjoy!

1 Tube 6-1254 Matte Metallic Blue Gray 
1 Tube 8-151FR Matte Transparent Cobalt AB -OR-
1 Tube 11-4516 Picasso Montana Matte
(I'd pick one or the other...brighten it up with the Cobalt or keep it dark with the Picasso Montana...I couldn't choose, you'll have to!)

I have to say, I love this necklace as is...but adding a charm at the button loop would add a bit of pizzazz! Consider adding a charm or perhaps a Czech Daisy on a headpin...what do you think?
