Purple Lentils

I've ummed and ahh'd over this necklace as I can't decide whether there are too many lampwork beads in it.

I've been experimenting with mixing colours in the lentils and still have some green and white and some blue and white ones to make up.
I've also been to the second week of my Jewellery and Beadmaking evening class at my local college. This is what I made there.

The beads are shell dyed purple with some simple pink seed beads. I think the clasp on the necklace is a little too large but was the only one I had with me at the time. The clasp on the bracelet is a magnetic one. After all the latest TV adverts from "Clever Clasps", I think I was brainwashed into buying magnetic clasps from my bead supplier.
