Gifts from the Sea


About this design:

When I designed under the sea beauties I could not decide between the silver and the brass metal, the silver metal won but I liked the effect of the brass so I decided to do another one using the brass with blue corals and this design was created.
I used two Filigree Squares and joined them with the insides facing each other so the filigree will always face the right side with the movement; I used jumprings to attach them together.
For the bracelet I joined the rest of the filigrees with pieces of chain and crystals also using jumprings.

Components:

Antique gold plated Filigree Squares, Blue Coral, antique bronze Bead Caps, golden metal Flowers, Montana Swarovski Crystal and Metal Chain

    oh, good! I was going to ask to see the bracelet. I love the bracelet. So cleverly connected in the filigree, terriffic job! what a lot of work to be sure everything faced just right! I would have to take it apart a few times to figure that out! The coral is super, and the necklace is too!
