Eiffel Tower necklace and acrylic bead necklace

Two of my most recent constructions. The Eiffel Tower necklace is about 10cm long and made of black Fimo paste, scored and cross-hatched in parts and then rubbed with silver paint. It's quite big and costumey, and the spiky top could seriously take someone's eye out. But I'll never stop wearing it, though.
The acrylic beads are of various sizes and shapes, all from Spotlight for about $2 for a pack of 6. Mixed in are some apricot-coloured teardrop shapes, and I used a few various small beads of similar colours to make up the narrow ends of the necklace. It looks really great against a red top: the purple colours glow and seem to pop with the bright colour behind them.
