About this design:
This piece was inspired by a beautiful 'paisley' large vermeil chain as well as the large toggle clasp, which is positioned in the front. Labradorite with yellow flashes became the stone of choice (so pretty with the vermeil!), as well as multi-colored stick pearls in a dark hue and a few white pearls.
New technique on this piece became a way to hang those wavy vermeil disks in all sizes from a headpin with a 1 mm ball on the end. They look so neat and dangle from the end of the headpin so nicely!
Middle picture shown in natural light so you can see the true colors of the stones. It's a long piece to wear so I didn't show it on a jewelry bust!
