Gingko Dream

About this design:

I fell in love with these gingko charms, so I added them to a helm weave chain, and I think it looks like my art deco theme continues. The critic is Pangur Dubh (Gaelic for "little black cat").

Components:

nickel silver and aluminum jump rings, Zola gingko charms, plated clasp

    The ginkgo leaves give this necklace a gorgeous patina coloring and weight. Your chain is a perfect compliment!

    As gorgeous as this piece is, my favorite part is the fabulous Pangur Dubh! (I just miss being owned by cats…)

    Ahhhh … I miss my Buster, who was a lookalike for Pangur Dubh. And Gingko is one of my favorite trees. I think they are so peaceful and graceful. Beautiful work!

    Pangur Dubh thanks his fans. Alas, he lost that single white whisker he had as a baby.

    I agree with all above! And Pangur Dubh is the the perfect model to show off your beautiful ginkgo necklace. Love all the green – my favorite color!
