A while back, I wrote about these gorgeous CZ drops and a necklace I made using four of them. Well, I started out with six CZ teardrops and had two left – one red and the other amber. I didn’t want to use them together again since I had already done that. I also thought one of them might look a little sad alone, so I looked for a companion and found this little black glass piece with a red splash. He said he wanted to play so I said OK.
I love the pairing and I call the piece dash dot. I realize that technically it’s maybe more of an exclamation point and dot, but at this point the dash dot name has stuck.
I used black beads with white spots and black glass for the main body of the necklace and for some reason, brown crystals seemed right for the front. A few tiny shell squares and two silver crescent roll beads complete the design.
