Bead Table Wednesday: Art Beads Winter Enchantment

 Hey!  It's Wednesday and I am finally participating in Bead Table Wednesday again!  I managed to squeak out an hour or so to finish up a necklace that I feel like has been in the works for a few weeks. I really wanted to use one of my resin Button Pendants. I tried several versions before I settled on using the Czech glass fire polish beads and gunmetal links and components above from Art Beads. The theme for this Art Beads challenge was Winter Enchantment, and I thought these pale icy glass beads were very wintry, especially when mixed with the cool gunmetal components and silvery colors of the pendant.  I added some locks and keys, because I cannot resist them, and a Green Girl pewter key was the very last touch I needed for another handmade element (as well as adding a couple of inches that I needed too)
Make sure you visit the BTW Flickr group to see what others have on their bead tables today!
