Feelin' the Need for Green


About this design:

I have cabin fever after months of snow. Love to take a hike through a leafy forest with wildflowers peeking up through fallen leaves, dappled sunlight and the fresh scents of unpolluted air.

Components:

Ocean jasper, new jade, African turquoise, aventurine, Czech glass leaves and beads, antique copper findings

    I love the colors! Really great piece! I’m ready for spring too. I can’t wait to be able to go outside for more than 10 minutes and not be an icicle

    Oh Laud, my sentiments exactly. This is a lovely piece just exuding spring. I’m more fortunate down here in N. Carolina but we still are getting more cold that normal that reminds me of living up north again. You have created a lovely bit of spring for us to enjoy.
