She Graduated

About this design:

My friend Kathy's daughter Marina graduated last was in question. One class was possibly going to keep her from walking. The final exam was the deciding factor.

I had kinda started on the necklace but had gotten busy with cleaning shed, patio, storage unit, attic...getting rid of accumumated crap. Then Kathy told me she might not graduate but if she did & it didn't rain did I want to go. For some reason I thought it was Friday...then I get the text Tuesday that she will walk...YEA. Then yesterday morning the be at Kathy's at 6pm. Crap!!...scramble to finish necklace. So its not exactly how I planned it and the photo is blurry. But she still loved it & that's all that matters. Congrats to Marina.

I know you cant tell but the pearls are all wire wrapped like the little green leaf necklace

Weird thing...every time I tried to type in components after I typed lavender I typed brown & then comma & it would automatically put in Brown Flower Agate. Ummmm no I didn't use nor do I have any Brown Flower Agate. Same thing with added Blue problem! Weird!!


Freshwater pearls in pink, lavender, blue & brown. Quartz chips in purple & green. Lipstick Ranch small daisy pendant. Copper wire, chain, lobster clasp.

    It looks awesome Deb. Love the length of it and the way you joined the pendant. Is that the LR flower?
