Citrine Garden

About this design:

I have had these murano glass beads with the flowers for a while and wasn't sure what to do with them. The beads themselves are like works of art and I didn't want to take away from that. I found these gorgeous chunks of citrine and immediately knew I wanted to put the two together and added the rose colored swarovski crystals to bring out the flowers in the beads.

    So gorgeous, Danielle — love the design and the colors you used to draw the colors out of those lovely Murano beads are perfect! :D

    Danielle..this is a true work of art. The beads work so well together. A perfect ‘marriage!’ The little pink crystals are a lovely subtle enhancement. I’d love to see this in sunlight!
    I think it would look perfect,worn with a nice scoop neck linen blouse in a beige shade.

    Thanks Lynn! I had to rush home from work to make sure there was enough light left to take good pictures :) It was worth it though because as you can see the natural light really picks up the beauty of the stones :) I think I might just start taking all my pics outside :) lol
