This is simply beautiful. And it's as easy as can be. I got a little confused when I read the material list. I couldn't figure out where you would use hundreds of jump rings or crimp beads. Then I understand that it was the way they come at Prima. Whew! I already have about 50 of each of those so no need. I think this would also look pretty in shades of blue and light green to mimic the ocean.

I really want to make this necklace, but I can't find the beads anywhere. Please let me know where I can buy them. Thanks
