Rain Chain

About this design:

I am often inspired by nature and garden art, this design was no exception. The bead caps reminded me of the cups on a rain chain, and the evolution began.


The vast majority of this design is from the Spring Rain Necklace/bracelet kit. I added a few blue Fluorite rounds, additional Vintaj bead caps and chain, with a touch of ribbon. Kit items used: Luster Blue Crystal Faceted Rondelles, African Glass (bottle) Irregular, Labradorite Faceted Rondelles,Labradorite Faceted Rounds, Blue Green Fluorite Flat Ovals,Marine Blue Shell Pearls. Vintaj: Arte Metal Waterlily Ribbon Slide, Natural Brass Flower Petal Bead Caps, Arte Metal 6 Petal Pierced Bead Caps, Arte Metal Head Pins, Arte Metal Jump Rings,

    So many different components, but you have pulled them all together so well, which I find difficult to do. It’s a beautiful piece.
