Spring

About this design:

I wanted to make a very simple set that was light weight with spring colors.
The necklace is strung on 3 short sections of memory wire and has a bit of a scallop look. The pink beads are glass chips and the green ones are dyed magnesite I think. The chain is antique silver but I may replace it with a copper chain since the ear rings are made with copper.

Components:

memory wire, glass chips, dyed magnesite, antique silver chain

    I’m surprised to see you use pink too. But pink and green is such a beautiful combo for spring. Using the memory wire for scallops is such a nifty idea. Great design. Great set.

    LRC, great idea connecting memory wire sections together! The scallops are a very cool effect. I like how the eye moves along the dips in the wire. Those green magnesite beads are awesome, and I love how you used the chips to complement their solid smooth surface. Nice work!

    the pink and green scream SPRING! This is such a pretty set and I agree that the curve of the memory wire is a great eye catching aspect of the necklace.

    Spring and spring and spring! What a lovely set. I also love the memory wire scallops. This does give me inspiration that spring may be on her way. Our loons are back but no spring peepers or buds, yet.
