Amber and Green Stone


About this design:

This necklace takes me to the runways of the world. It is quite different, but isn't that what runway is? I love the large chunks of vintage amber lucite along with the mysterious green stone, and it all comes together with the wood spacers, making it a very natural looking piece.

Components:

unknown green stone, vintage amber lucite, wood spacers, gold rounds

    Stormy Chic and Antique to Chic, glad you both liked that article. It is a good one to pass along to our fellow beaders about how to price items. Sometimes when I get something at a great price I am tempted to price the item at what I actually paid x a markup. Hmmm, food for thought after reading that! All the best … SLS
