Aurora Skies - Spring Rain 2012

About this design:

This is a necklace of firsts for me! My first contest, use of patinas, use of silk, and attempt to photograph something I made in order for it to be viewed online. I learned a great deal from this - and have much more to learn - but it's been really fun, and I'm just happy to have Aurora Skies in a group with so many beautiful designs!
