About this design:

I made this necklace in a memory of summers at the Jersey shore back in the 1970's. We were all beaders in one way or another~mostly long multiple strands of seed beads.
These colors and the entire design I came up with remind me of those carefree, oh so happy days


Mother of Pearl shell rose shaped pendant. Fluorite multicolor nugget beads. Sterling silver spacers, clasp, and extender. 49 strand .019 beading wire, sterling silver bullion, crimps and crimp covers

    This is so lovely. That pendant is gorgeous! And the fluorite beads are superb. It’s not often you see such multiple colors in one strand. Lovely work.
