Spring Rain Necklace


About this design:

The Spring Rain inspired necklace is my last piece....I couldn't decide on one. One of my favorite flowers is lily of the valley, so when I saw the Vintaj lily of the valley pendant I wanted to highlight it. With exception of the tagua sliver, copper chain, wire, and handmade copper clasp everything was from either the earring or necklace kit.

The charm drops and aquamarine drops are meant to be 'raining' on the lily of the valley as is evident but the 'ripples' in the tagua nut behind the pendant.

Components:

2 Blue Green Fluorite Flat Oval 10x8mm beads, 4 Vintaj Natural Brass Flower Petal Bead Caps 7mm, 2 Labradorite Faceted Round 6mm beads, 6 Luster Blue Crystal Faceted Rondelle 10mm beads, Vintaj Arte Metal Head Pins, 6 Peruvian Amazonite Round 6mm beads, Vintaj Arte Metal Jump Ring, 4 Aquamarine Tumbled Nugget Drop 7-10x8-15mm beads, 2 Labradorite Faceted Rondelle 4mm beads, 2 Marine Blue Shell Pearl Round 6mm beads, 4 Marine Blue Shell Pearl Round 8mm beads, 2 Marine Blue Shell Pearl Round 12mm beads, 12 Smoky Quartz Round 6mm beads, 1 Vintaj Arte Metal Lily of the Valley Pendants 14x55mm, 2 Labradorite Faceted Rondelle 4mm beads, 4 Luster Blue Crystal Faceted Rondelle 4mm beads, 1 tagua nut sliver, copper coated chain, copper clasp, WireLace Azure Ribbon 1mm
