Clouds Necklace

About this design:

I designed a vaguely cloud-shaped bib focal for this necklace, gave it a wash of sky blue with gilder's paste, and added a mess of gemstones, including angelite ovals from Lima, moonstone, blue sponge coral, denim lapis and bronzite. Copper box chain also from Lima.


Copper, Angelite, Bronzite, Moonstone, sponge coral, leather, Tiger Iron, denim lapis, copper plated box chain.
