Cascading Spring Rain

About this design:

Lovely spring rain. I was thinking of how the rain cascades over a flower bush, down the leaves, forming large drops, before dripping to the ground, while making this. I was going for something more organic, therefore the assymetrical design, since nature has so many textures and colors. The last picture is the back of the pendant, showing how I attached everything.


Vintaj spring rain kit, slate shell pearl mix round 6mm, Vintaj nouveau swirls toggle ring and bar, vintaj Patina (verdigris Moss cobalt marine cinnabar), Santa Fe summer hand dyed silk ribbon, anique brass twisted oval & figure 8 chain, capri blue & oiled bronze , crystal faceted rondelle 8mm, luster silver crystal faceted rondelle 8mm, sea foam green silver plated 20g wire.

    Oh, I can so see the rain in this piece. And the back of the necklace is so pretty it almost warrants a design in itself.

    The swirl on the back of the necklace was a happy accident, while I was trying to figure out how to join everything togethe. I was thinking how it would be to wear it so I had to make sure it would not snag on a blouse or feel rough.
