Ariel Ocean Necklace


About this design:

This 5 strand necklace reminds me of walking on a white sand beach with turquoise blue water as far as the eye can see. Washed up on the beach you come across some white coral, seashells, and maybe some blue or bronze stones and glass. In the water you spot a seahorse, a turtle and starfish. All these beautiful finds were in my mind when I created this Ariel Ocean necklace.

Components:

Natural Turquoise, African Turquoise, Brass square beads, turquoise Seashells, White coral, Gold beads, Apatite stones, Agates, Swarovski crystals, Blue glass, Rustic gold/bronze cast turtle, seahorse & starfish.

    Thanks Nancy Mc:) appreciate the nice comments. It looks really good on either a black or white T-shirt or tank dress, and especially with a tan.

    Actually, I was picturing more like a private beach somewhere in the Caribbean, and your gorgeous necklace taking the place of the top of a turquoise bikini. ;) LOL
