Combining Jewelry Components 'Now is the Time!'

Several years ago I took Barbara Becker Simon’s class on Hollow Beads in Tucson AZ. http://www.bbsimon.com/pmc.html  I loved making my silver metal clay beads.  I made two that interlocked and actually finished the project in class.  I just could not decide how to use them.  They hung from a wire on my wall.  I’m sure you all have components just waiting for the jewelry gods to say, “Now! Now is the time to use this!”

I’m finishing Keith Lo Bue’s Steel Wire class http://keithlobue.blogspot.com and just made the ‘U’ link chain. 
It was on my work table when I decided I needed to see if I had anything to use as a focal.  That’s when I heard the voice saying “Now!  Now is the time to use your silver hollow beads!”    
I must say that I am very pleased with the results and wanted to share this necklace with you.
