Tropical Sun

About this design:

I made this necklace last November. It was a gray day and I needed a pick-me-up. As I was making it, I thought of what the tropics would be like. Lol. The tassel is from Lima.


Multi-colored thread tassel with pagoda cap, rainbow (orange) stones, blue-green magnesite puffed teardrops, silver saucer beads, crimp beads, crimp covers, Beadalon bead wire

    Lovely Bev. It really does look tropical. Love the saucer beads between the stones.I don’t see a clasp – how long is it?

    I like the bright colors! It is definitely a happy, spirit-lifting piece. The puffed teardrops at the bottom kinda point to the tassel focal and draw the eye down. Nicely designed necklace! :)

    What’s the precise name of the silver bead tops you used? I am looking for them, but I can’t find them.

    Happy Hippie – the silver beads are crimp bead covers. They cover the crimp beads so the design has a nice finish.
