Necklace Design-first attempt.

I have recently been trying to come up with some jewelry designs. I don't really like making jewelry but I know of a show coming up that I would like to be a part of. I only want to participate if I can come up with something awesome so I'm trying to challenge myself to come up with some new ideas. I'm interested in the play between refined and rustic and have been experimenting with it in my pots as well as in the jewelry ideas. Here are some photos I took of the first one to come out. I made it more as a sketch, just with some beads and stuff I had laying around the house. The ceramic beads are made by me and finished with a metallic glaze just on the inside and around the edge. Hopefully they will get better but, boy, I am NOT a jeweler! I do have the utmost respect for them though:)

Those beads are very beautiful and unusual, how creative you are. I don't like designing jewelry either, but I do like making beads and pendants.
