Starry Nights


About this design:

I wanted to make a piece for an evening statement. Something really unusual. This piece actually started out as a bracelet which grew into a necklace. As the "metal with stone" pieces do not sit flat but are curved for a bracelet, it was quite difficult to string it properly. It took some doing. In the end, I am happy with the result and have actually sold the set. Woohoo!

Components:

Cast metal with cut colored glass pieces, antique gold starfish, AB crystals, Swarovski rondelles, faceted crystals, Silver bail, Sterling silver clasp & chain, Druzy pendants on the earrings. Sterling silver earring hooks.
