If the pendant you chose has multiple colors, try to incorporate most of these into the rest of the necklace. Use beads of these colors, along with similar colored thread. This allows appreciation of the whole necklace design, rather than focusing on one color.
Use beads that are similar in quality to the stones in the pendant. If the stones in the pendant are gemstones with beautiful facets, use quality faceted beads. If the pendant has tumbled stones with lots of inclusions, you should use baroque beads that won't take the limelight away from the focal pendant.
Add different sizes and shapes of metal beads and findings for professionalism and to enhance the focal bead, but without drawing too much attention to themselves. Spacers are also useful to add-design and to economize on the beads used - saving you money.
Large beads, like frame beads, can also be used as the focal point of your necklace instead of a pendant. Use different sizes and color beads in your necklace for effect, variation ads style. Finally, choose the catch to match, attached with jump rings. A dainty necklace uses a tiny clasp, whereas a heavy necklace needs a larger, stronger catch.
