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.

Components:

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.
