Lotus and Pearls Necklace

About this design:

After having the Gaea lotus pendant on my beadboard for a few weeks, struggling with what do do with it, I finally sat down last night and put this necklace together. I didn't want to go too simple, but, I didn't want to detract from the gorgeous pendant, either. I think I did OK.


Gaea copper lotus pendant, Peruvian Blue Opal nuggets and flat ovals, Copper Green Opal puff rounds, copper chain, Pyrite flower, Czech glass bellflowers,(all LB), gold and copper FW pearls, and antique copper toggle.
