fleur de bleu


About this design:

A friend described a necklace she saw somewhere and asked if I could make it. This was the best I could do with the description. She loves it! But, I must confess, I wore it once myself.

Components:

Blue quartz faceted briolettes form the "petals". The center is made with black freshwater pearls. The strands are pearls and faceted Czech glass beads. Lobster clasp and chain make the length adjustable.

    Well, this is really beautiful. You did a great job! Your friend is very lucky to have you! As for wearing the necklace, I always take mine out for a “test drive” before I sell it or give it away. Then you have a feel for how well you did or did not do.

    Love It!! I actually made one with a flower alot like this but the flower flopped forward!! Uhhh, any pointers on how to keep from flopping?

    That was a challenge. I glued a suede circle on the back, poking the wire through it and added some tube beads in between. It kind of flops on the necklace form, but stays up really well on a human!
