About this design:

I had the Gaea pendant and the charoite rondelles for some time. Both seemed special to me; I didn't want to "lose" them in a design where they weren't important. Then I bought the Grace beads on sale, and the solution was putting them all together!

Components:

Gaea ceramic pendant, Grace pillows, charoite rondelles, fw pearls, shell pearls, Czech glass, antique silver clasp.

    What an exquisite necklace. I immediately pictured it being worn with a lavender/violet velvet dress with a sweetheart neckline.

    I also test drive jewelry! Sometimes the piece needs a little long ride, right?
    This one just may be a keeper. It’s lovely.

    Gorgeous creation. I must say that I’ve never thought of Charoite as interesting,until you brought it to life. Now I want some!! ;)

    I think it’s a beautiful stone–rich and very colorful, with cream, white, yellow and peachy tones mixed into the lavenders. Have fun with it!

    Clever and unique designing. This piece looks very heavy though. I could be wrong. But it is an elegant piece.
