About this design:

I wanted to create a piece that would go with the primary colors that would not only compliment bright colors, but be dazzling with white. I found these two large fish beads and designed around them. Jade was the primary stone--bright blue barrels, red teardrops, lime green nuggets and yellow sponge coral rounds. I also incorporated silver seashells in the design and finished with a toggle clasp. I think anyone would enjoy wearing this necklace during the summer months.

Components:

two large silver plated fish, silver seashells, bright blue jade barrels, lime green agate nuggets, red jade teardrops, yellow sponge coral rounds.
