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").


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!
