Still fiddling around with the green amethyst/prehnite necklace. I took the little chain and vermeil bead off the back...I think the idea would look nice if I had the right vermeil bead for it, say something like this mint leaf charm from Nina Designs:

I don't have anything like that currently, so I'd tried using the same square vermeil bead here:

And it didn't look so great.

Today I went for four vermeil beads in the back instead of two. Of course now I'll have to shorten the chain. So I went ahead and wrapped all four beads in, without cutting the chain.

I'm wearing it now; I won't cut the chain until I've worn it a few days. I don't have any more of this particular chain, so I'd like to be sure before cutting.

Oh well, after all this preamble...I'm playing around with the idea of using green stones to accentuate green eyes (I'm a beauty blogger after all). Hence this necklace is not exactly "a green necklace to wear with a green outfit." I tried it out with a green top and it looked underwhelming...the watery greens of the stones paled when paired with outright green. It looks best paired with an utterly neutral outfit where it adds a dash of color.
