After the Rain

About this design:

I had patina'd the large medallion last year during the Spring Rain challenge. Then I put it away. After looking at it for so long, I figured I should do something with it.


Large natural brass medallion, brass filigree connectors, shell pearls, czech glass, MOP coins, Labradorite rondelles, antiqued brass chain and hook clasp.

    Super cool Susie! I like the contrast but similarity of the smaller filigree with the focal. The pearls add such class!!! :)
