Denim Classic

About this design:

This started with the kyanite pendant I ordered last Fall. When gemstones were on sale during the January Crossword event, I ordered the kyanite flat ovals. This is another necklace I just made for myself to wear with a tee-shirt and jeans. Finished length about 17 inches.


From Lima Beads: Kyanite Flat Teardrop 12x25-28mm, Kyanite Flat Oval 9x7mm. Other components: sodalite faceted rondelles 6mm, freshwater pearls, silver-plated rounds 3mm and 4mm, silver-plated lobster clasp.

    Paula, this necklace is beautiful! I think you don’t have to limit it to tee and jeans. It would be lovely with anything. :)

    Thanks for your feedback, everyone ! Love the comments that I could wear this with anything – - and although I’ve always loved to dress up, now that I live in ranch country, I also live in blue jeans. But it doesn’t stop me from wearing pearls – - -

    I love blue and white. Those colors remind me of white linens hanging on a clothesline on a sunny day. Gorgeous necklace.
