Woodland Wonder

About this design:

I didn't expect the druzy to be so big! I used it as my starting point, adding the bead cap to the tassel. The dragonfly charm was the last add-on. The beads are 27 inches long with a 4 3/4 inch drop.

Components:

Large druzy, sienna brown tassel, Vintaj magnolia bead cap, dragonfly charm, Mahogany Obsidian beads, Rutilated Quartz, C-lon chocolate .5mm bead cord, gold and antique copper wire, Nunn Design gold textured oval jump ring

    Bev – Lovely nod to nature in this necklace. I love the dragonfly with the bead cap above the tassel. What size beads did you use? Colors really do look like woodland.

    Oh, I really like the contrast between the Mahogany Obsidian & Quartz. It looks like you knotted the beads–nice touch. The dragonfly is a sweet addition to the tassel. Great piece to wear!
