About this design:

I hadn't made a choker in a while and had this fan set on hand from a long time ago. Sadly, the photos I have taken make the whole thing look a little more garish than the actual piece. The freshwater pearls, which are a really pretty pale green, don't really separate from the brassy spacers. So use your imaginations, folks! :-)


Dichroic glass fan set, faceted glass briolettes, freshwater pearls, base metal spacers.

    This is very beautiful and unique. I especially zoomed in on the green briolettes. They really pull the green from the glass. This piece has Egyptian princess written all over it. ;)
