Shoreline Treasure

About this design:

My first design with one of Petra's pieces from Scorched Earth. So much fun! I don't care for huge earrings, so I made an articulated pendant. I chose water-toned bits to play up the watery side of driftwood.
Also made coordinating earrings.


'Driftwood' ceramic piece, aqua/picasso Czech glass, Snakeskin Jasper (20mm, 6mm rounds, 10mm rondelle), 6mm Amazonite faceted rondelles, chain, wire, antique brass bead caps.

    Oh how pretty! I love a simpe statement like this one. You certainly captured the water theme.
    Amazonite..YUM!! I’d love to wear this. I also like your earrings. That shape of ear wire is great.

    Thanks for the positive feedback!
    I am thinking about moving the ‘lumps’ on the stones closer together, closer to the pendant, so the last ones aren’t on the back of the neck…..
