    Beautiful necklace! All of the beads compliment your flower
    I have 2 porcelain flower focals. I posted 1 necklace awhile back.

    Lovely china rose (high class ceramics….) and a great choice of colors to go with it. Classy design!

    sweetjane – Your necklace is sooo pretty. I love the porcelain rose, the gold accents and the little bell flowers on the clasp. I bet it looks great when worn. How big is the rose?
    So much fun to use a piece that we’ve had forever.

    This is lovely, and with so many things that inspire me to think outside my little box! I wouldn’t have thought to use gold lava rocks, but they look terrific! And your pinks and magenta accent the gray focal so well.

    Beautiful combination of differing pink beads that create a lovely backdrop for the grey rose focal. Using the gold lava rock adds extra interest and a bit of surprise to the piece. I also need to step outside my comfort zone.
