About this design:

These were designed as companion pieces, but left separate. I honestly thought I would have to charge too much as a double strand.

The two pieces were purchased together at the bazaar! along with a simple pair of earrings.

Components:

Seraphinite ovals, fwp's, czech glass rondelles, silver daisies, ss rounds, seed beads

    Thank you Becky and Lynn – I was so excited when I saw how well the czech glass went with the seraphite. The czech does look like velvet in person.

    Lynn – it’s funny – when I make a double strand necklace, it just sits. I kept these separate and it sold. I don’t get it. But I’m not complaining.

    Dear Jeanne ~ lovely pieces. I have done this too…made a multi-strand necklace and leave them as 2 or 3 separate necklaces. I think the neat thing about it is that you can wear either one by itself or both together … 3 necklaces in one!

    I love the Seraphinite. It’s lovely with the pearls and daisy spacers.

    Jeanne, I just knew this had to be your design. It is so lovely!!!! Congrats on the sale. This is definitely in my favorites. It’s a good thing I live too far away from you to go to your sales or I would want to buy everything you make! LOL

    I just think this is the most wonderful way to use the seraphinite that there could be. I don’t know how anyone could have resisted buying the entire set. Congrats.

    Great idea to make two seperate strands!!! A double strand necklace gives you one look – albit, a great one. Two necklaces give three different looks- plus other mix-n-match options based on the new owner’s jewel box! :)
