Under The Sea Beauties


About this design:

I was at the beach and the water was so calm, I could look through it like a glass, while walking in the water and looking at the corals and the fish I found pink, purple and yellow corals, they where amazing so I decided to create something using these colors, I took a picture of them for future reference and the same afternoon at home I chose some stones that has the same colors and this design was created immediately. Whenever I look at this necklace I remember the beauties from under the sea and hope that we can keep the earth and the seas beautiful and clean for our grandchildren and their children to enjoy.

Components:

Honey Jade, Strawberry Quartz, and Amethyst, Swarovski crystals, metal beads and bead capes, Metal oval focal link, metal chain

    I checked you out on the map sort of on the weather channel.com and it looks maybe farther for you. Wowsa! My daughter lives over by Tampa in Florida and my brother in North Fort Meyers Florida both cities are really close on the Gulf of Mexico. I’ve never seen anything on their beaches except lots of sand crushed shells and a few little fishies. Your corral is so cool and pretty.

    This is the most adorable necklace I have seen. You have done a fabulous job with it and I can tell that it is a fun piece to wear. Imagine making this necklace using a Fall motif of leaves and Fall colors and in Winter using snowflakes and Winter colors. Definitely a favorite of mine. Thanks for sharing.
