The lovely Erin at Treasures Found is sponsoring a quick fire challenge: Use her Toast of the Town design in a different colorway and share what we came up with. I was one of the lucky three to win beads to use in the challenge. Here is what I won:

I love those colors! Wearing jeans and a black turtleneck was one of my most FAVORITIST outfits. Still is. I really only needed to add a couple beads here and there to finish off the necklace: long blue glass beads, peacock blue freshwater pearls, black glass beads and silver seed beads.
Isn't that clasp beautiful? Love it!
I am not very wordy as it is 11:30 PM and I had to restring one portion of the necklace three times...twice because I needed to add some more beads to make it as long as I needed it and the last time because as I was trying to line up the two long strands, one of the bead stoppers let go and an entire, 42 inch strand, crashed to the floor. My sweet, sweet 10-year old son paused the TV, jumped out of his chair, and dove under the desk to rescue a majority of the beads.
He is pure awesome sauce :-)
Thank you Erin for the wonderful beads and for hosting yet another fabulous challenge!
