Ice Princess

About this design:

It is the middle of summer and very hot here right now and this piece reminds me of ice cubes floating in a glass of water. So cool and refreshing.


Rock crystal focal piece, 3 sided textured rice rock crystal beads, Green & Pink AB crystal rondelles and silver beads from my stash.

    No NY Bella, I am in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa and it is hot and humid this time of year. Of course it is ideal weather for all the visitors who flock to the coast to enjoy the sun & sea, but I must admit I prefer the cooler weather of the winter months.

    Exquisite ice necklace and earrings!! I have those rough crystals, too, but hadn’t come up with a design yet. I might have to borrow some of your design ideas! :)

    What a beautiful set. I love your wire work on the icicle focal. I’m a huge fan of Rock Crystal Quartz.

    Nancy I am afraid I cannot take credit for the wirework on the focal.
    I bought it from Lima as is.

    Stunning! Love it!

    When I was still teaching I generally worked summer camp K-6. During the hottest time of the summer we would have snowball fights using scrap typing paper formed into balls. It helped a bit but a lot of imagination was needed. Your beautiful creation doesn’t need imagination to see it is icy and verrrrry cool! :D
