Softly Sparkling

About this design:

Soft Pink Lampwork beads and Swarovski crystals, Light and Yellow Smoky Quartz, Golden Champagne Keishis and Vermeil is the base of this sparkling necklace. I started thinking this necklace should have a pendant, but I ended up with no pendant - the beads and the Vermeil box clasp are so nice they don't need a "disturbing" focal, I think.


Light Smoky Quartz, Yellow Smoky Quartz, Pink Swarovski crystal discs, Lavender Quartz, Golden Champagne Keishis, Lampwork beads (soft pink, clear, cream, gold), Vermeil filigree box clasp, beading wire, crimp beads, goldplated crimp bead covers, wire protectors.

    I love the way the pink pops out at me! And those keishis are amazing! Love the color combo and textures in this piece. You were right it doesn’t need a pendant it is amazing on it’s own :) the clasp is beautiful too.

    Wenche, I’m not sure what’s left to say!!! LOL ;)

    I also noticed right away that the pink shades really “pop” in this gorgeous design & color combo! Wow! I also love the combo of textures & shapes! I agree with you that a focal would have distracted from the beauty of your necklace. Great lampwork beads and clasp! :D
