Fly Away Home

About this design:

When I first saw this Aqua Terra Jasper focal bead I knew it would look beautiful wrapped in antique brass filigree. As I was searching my bead supply for pinks and peaches I found the carved crystal butterflies and there was no looking back. I love movement in my jewelry so the dangles were a must. The dragonfly just flew in there and made itself at home and a design was born. Sorry the pictures not very good.


This design has glass beads in pale pink AB spirals, apricot spirals, mauve milk glass teardrops, raspberry and pale pink disc spacer beads, dark pink 4 mm bicone crystals, round beads in corral, raspberry and apricot. Vintaj elements are antique brass wrapped filigree, dragonfly, small bead caps, small veined leaves, 4 mm flower heishis, tiny cone bead ends and cable chain. The gemstones are a peachy pink round Aqua Terra Jasper focal bead, carved pink crystal butterflies, and light carnelian cone spacers. Finished with a round antique brass filigree clasp

    So glad the dragonfly flew in- it makes the focal! All came together so harmoniously in this beautiful necklace.
