Blushing Petals.....

About this design:

My first submission to Limabeads design gallery! :) I have been buying beads from LB forever, but never sent any of my work in...well, here's my latest piece...I hope you like it!


Hand formed and hammered spiral links, spiral beads (also handmade), links and clasps, using sterling silver and 14k GF (in both yellow and rose gold).. Pyrite Rice, Beryl Morganite, African Opal, Rhodochrosite, Abalone, Grass Green Turquoise, as well as Aquamarine, Smoky Quartz, Moss Aquamarine, and an Imperial Jasper focal bead. This necklace to me just screams "Spring"....

    Oh my gosh..what a stunning gemstone garden for the neck!
    You wire work is wonderful as well. Who wouldn’t wear this necklace? It’s got everything you could want. I enjoyed guessing what the stones were,and got most of them right. It does screams of spring,but in a very delicate and sophisticated way.
    what a tunner. I’d love to see it in person and hold it up to the sunlight.
    ((to die for))!!!

    Thanks so much for all of the positive feedback! :) You are all so sweet… Yes, I have an addiction to gemstones of all shapes, sizes, cuts, colors, clarity, etc…. I love nuggets in the raw, or multi-faceted…. and I love combining them with mixed metals, or wood and leather, etc…
    It’s just so much fun!
