About this design:

The best thing, in my opinion, about Patricia Healey's new chain and links is that you don't have to commit to just one focal. They're easy to swap out. With spring being on my mind, I knew I wanted a floral pendant. Fortunately for me, Patricia has an abundance of floral choices. Now if I could just decide which one ;-)

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

Helpful Hints:

Hint 1:
I chose to use a coppery floral theme throughout this design and further incorporated that by knotting little bits of ribbon into the necklace.
Hint 2:
Choosing a pendant is the most important (a.k.a. fun) part... luckily I didn't have to choose just one!
