Bree's Choice


About this design:

I made this for a friend who is crazy about Citrine. She saw a Silver magnetic clasp I had in my clasp collection and wanted a necklace with "it" as the focal point! Ha! It was heavy and not a great focal point I thought, so I turned it into an interchangeable component! Now she can choose to wear it casual with the Pearl drops, or dressy with the large CZ twist as focal piece. Bree just pulls open the tab of the magnetic clasp, and switches the focal piece. She was thrilled, called me a genius...I wouldn't go so far....just a creative way to solve a problem!

Components:

Sunshine Cz (Lima beads), vanilla freshwater Pearls, Citrine rondells,Shells, Czech glass tube beads, Sterling Silver findings, Silver laser carved beads, Silver magnetic clasps with tiny embedded Citrines
