It really inspired me to finally use the silver alphabet beads I have been hoarding for way too long. Somehow I just hadn't found the right beads to go with them. The gunmetal chain and dark blue/purple stars of the necklace transferred into Swarovski tanzanite rondelles and faceted smoky quartz rondelles.
Someone came up with an eye pleasing colour combination - I guess there is no crime in stealing it? ;-)
