Buttery Goodness

About this design:

This is a completed piece based on my fresh pick called “Buttery, garlicky goodness” and was primarily inspired by the garlic bead and my love of the Mediterranean Sea and all of its related loveliness and food.


6 mm round citrine beads. 4 mm emerald agate faceted beads. Silver (plated) beads, silver garlic bead, worry fish bead.

    This is connected to fresh pick but it uploaded sideways! Will try to reload—hope you can still see it and enjoy—so much fun!

    Love the design and the fabulous selection of elements you have used. The placement of the toggle makes it easy-on/easy-off which I really appreciate.

    I really like all the metal in this piece! It’s great how you pulled the Mediterranean concept throughout the whole necklace. Very nice work! :)

    Such nice comments! I LOVE wearing it—the citrine beads feel so light and happy on many levels and against the metal and green agate it’s just fun.
