Designs on a Theme

About this design:

I was lucky enough to purchase 4 lovely sterling silver connectors from an acquaintance. And decided to try and create four different necklaces, but in a similar romantic style…perfect for Valentine's Day.


Sterling silver, freshwater pearls, turquoise, Labradorite, chalcedony

    Impressive! Each is lovely in its own right, but together, they’re a great example of how versatile the design is. I really like the fact that you added interest to the chain ends–great touch!

    They are all lovely but, if forced to choose, I’m always going to go with Labradorite!

    I love all 4. Romantic, old-fashioned with a fresh update. The third is my favorite.

    Love them all! As for Sundance, I have actually looked up how you get in- you submit photos of your work directly to them. They consider them for the next catalog, and will either send the photos back=not interested at all, keep them but not contact you=possible consideration for future catalog issues, or keep them + call you and let you know how many/work out the details on your deal with them. I hope to someday be able to attempt such a feat, but you definitely already could, for sure! Gorgeous pieces!
