Two beaded chokers for I Might Make That! Monday

Gems Necklace by Monica
Glad to be back home after seven of the past nine days on the road, plus work commitments that ate up most of Saturday. I'm mostly caught up with laundry. But enough whining. I owe you all some patterns.

This first necklace is something I spotted on Pinterest. It's from an Italian blog that Chrome translates as "The Casket of Jewels." (Am wondering if that should be "The Jewelry Box." Anybody out there speak Italian? The original is Lo Scrigno dei Gioielli.)

I can identify the artist only as Monica, and she calls the choker simply "Gems Necklace." There's a schematic, so you don't need to bother with having to translate the text. I really like the undulating effect created by the bugle beads. The pattern is here.
Beaded pearl necklace Irvin

Since I skipped posting last week, I'll throw in another tute. This one appeared recently on Beads Magic. It's simple enough, but I do have a fondness for pearls, and I like the effect created by the two different sizes. 

Again, the creator is identified only as Irvin. (Or maybe the necklace is called Irvin. I really can't tell.) Anyway, the link to the pattern is here, and the schematic looks amazingly simple.
