Katie Hacker loves Jennifer's cheerful daisy pendants and this necklace is a fun way to show the world your sunny disposition. Luminous crystal pearls are unexpected accents for the bold ceramic components, but it all comes together to make a big statement that you can dress up or down. Katie presents "Beading Lessons" on each episode of the public television show Beads, Baubles & Jewels. She is also the author of more than 15 beading books, teaches workshops at national venues, and writes a column called Katie's Beading Secrets for Beadwork magazine.

  2. Katie-
    You did such a nice job on this set. I love how the pearls shimmer and add a soft touch to the brilliant colors of the Jangles beads. I don't think I would have thought about putting pearls with these...now I will rethink that!
    Enjoy the day!
