Bonus Envy


About this design:

So I made this necklace as a bonus to go with the bracelet. I decided something simple that would not really detract from the bracelet was called for. Supporting cast...so to speak. A simple toggle closure in front with a tassle of the agates hanging from.the loop part. Let me know what you think Nancy.

Components:

Copper chain. Copper toggle closure. Green agates. Green crystals. Bronze crystals. Copper spacers. Copper eyepins & jump rings.

    Yes Becky that is Grant. He hasn’t been around because he had a large mum blocking him and the.light wasn’t hitting him right either. The mum just got cut back because it didn’t bloom at all an was dying off.

    Thank you Becky and Susie.

    This is a very lovely, elegant design that will add to the bracelet but not take anything away from it Great job!

    I love it. Its so pretty and just the right amount of color. I’ve had those agate beads for years and never knew what I’d do with them. Thanks for solving that issue for me :) .

    Its the perfect addition to a set and one that I know I’ll wear a LOT!

    Thank you!

    Too cool,and will compliment the bracelet nicely. I like the shade of crystals you’ve used here,as well as the little coils at the bottom of your wraps.

    Very understated and will compliment the bracelet nicely. Love your little squiggles at the end of your wraps!

    LOVE IT!!! I have some chunky chalcedony nuggets that are begging to be used. This is the perfect design idea.
    I really think the simplicity of the design ADDS to the overall piece and lets the nuggets really make a statement!!! :)
