Holiday Peacocks


About this design:

(first, big apology for the photos. Haven't been home during the day to get a good sunlight photo.) I have been inspired by the peacock feather themed christmas ornaments/decorations I have seen in my local shops, so I put together my own version of a holiday necklace a'la peacock! Longer necklace ( I like turtles and cowls in the winter so the necklaces go longer as not to get tangled in the fabric), using recycled sari silk and yummy blue/green pearls and crystals. Bring on the holiday parties!

Components:

Sari silk ribbon, sterling link, handmade clasp, dyed freshwater pearl, sterling bead, grey crystal, titanium coated crystal points, pyrite nuggets.

    Very pretty,and romantic. A real statement piece.
    When I look at this,I think of it being worn by a “bohemian” poet,sitting in a cafe in the Paris of the 1890′s.
