I found these pretty do-it-yourself jewelry pieces in the beading section of WalMart.
The top photo shows three of the sections, but before I used part of the set, it originally had 6 sections of connected beads.
I think it would have made a nice bracelet by just adding the closure to the ends but I decided to make earrings and a pendant on a chain.
The set turned out pretty and I still have enough left to make a second set.
