Linked necklace with pendants

We present a project for an effective linked necklace made using a combination of PRECIOSA Fire Polished Beads and pendants made of PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads in tones of pomegranate juice. You can also choose other shades of glass, as both types of beads are available in the same colors and finishes.
