Slice of summer

About this design:

I love long pendant necklaces and wanted to make a new one for summer. I love mixing elements like these- -some unexpected things with pearls.


Knotted pearls, agate slice, Zola coin bead, pewter leaf bail

    This is beautiful either long or wrapped twice! Great mix of elements.

    I think this beautiful necklace could be worn year round. It would look great with a Christmas outfit as well as a summer sun dress. Or image it with a spring green suit.

    I think long necklaces are so neat. This one is just beautiful. The multiple focal treatment really works.

    Really beautiful design! Love your organic backdrops, they display the pearls and agate so well.

    Spectacular set! The Zola coin with leaf bail make a beautiful transition to the knotted pearls. I like your presentations in the photos so much – especially with that gorgeous patterned dress! (top?) Cool bracelets and leather (!) earrings to match!
