I made the necklace from Preciosa purple beads made into links. The black beads with caps are sold as links and I got everything, including the chain from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. I just checked and the black beads are no longer available, as they were a closeout item. I did see some other links that would work, though. I love this necklace. It was simple to make as some of the work is done for you.
