Go Long Green Tea

About this design:

So this is Green Tea necklace I was talking about in my pick yesterday. I have the hardest time taking decent photos of the long necklaces.(Anyway)It's easy to wear. I've been on a long necklace kick as of late.


Various Czech glass beads mostly purchased at Lima, Brass beads and chain purchased else where.

    This is gorgeous Teri! I love the green tea with the brass. The dragonfly Czech glass is one of my all-time favs and you certainly did it justice.

    I agree wth LRC. The greens are perfect against the dark metal. It’s very striking contrast.
    Love the Dragonfly. It looks like a fossil.

    This must be so nice to wear. I bet you look lovely. That dragonfly is a favorite of mine. Thank you for sharing.
    And any length is nice if that’s how you feel best. After all our design our length our call.

    Beautiful work! All the elements go together so well and center attention on the lovely dragonfly piece! And I agree with Nancy — it does look rather like a fossil, like a dragonfly in amber (of a different color). ;)

    Gorgeous, I too like the contrast of the watery greens with the dark chain and darker beads. Love this colors combo, and one of this dragon flies is actually sitting on my table :D

    Thank you all so much! Again it was one of those times where I bought the beads and the the design came later. Good to know I’m not the only one that has a fascination with dragonflies. :)

    Hello Terri, (I saw your name on other posts) :)
    I have been going to every jewelry site on the web, and going to the design section of ideas, and designs, and jewelry making inspiration, and it was here & your necklace that has finally gave me the inspiration to get started on something right now! I’ve been stumped for weeks, and now I have a vision. Not your design, but it gave me the ideas & colors I’ve been looking for to twist with my own creations. I just wanted something beautiful to catch my eye, and get me going wanting to make my own beautiful piece. I love the czech beads you used. That is my style all the way! The chain, the czech rondelles, and squares with those awesome colors. Earthy type tones. I just love it! :)
    So I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful inspiration of your work to get me out of a rut! :) Melissa~
