Anything But a Card

 There are a couple of challenges out there this week that are "Anything But a Card", so I'm taking a leap and entering this necklace and earrings set I just finished this morning.  I have had these short (7-8 inch) pieces of beading wire sitting on my desk for months.  I didn't want to throw them out, but couldn't quite decide what to use them for since they are too short for a traditional bracelet length.  Just about the time I saw the idea in a magazine, I thought they would be perfect for beaded circles.  I don't use seed beads often, but need them every once in a while and therefore have a decent collection.  And I had this piece of seaglass lying around needing to be used too.  And voila, the necklace was born.  And I used up all but one of those short pieces of wire!
