Sunny Inspiration


About this design:

This necklace was inspired by Sunny Chick design Olive, I loved the way she used wiring and stringing together in the same design, so I used her idea to create this necklace. The Swarovski crystals with the copper beads happened by itself while tiring to figure out how to use the top hole crystals. For the chain I just twisted two pieces of the same chain together.

Components:

Metal disk, metal links, copper beads, Swarovski crystals, peridot rondelle, Smoky topaz, silver metal chain, antic silver metal Butterflies, Mookaite, Ammonite Fossil.
