Caribbean Dreams Necklace

About this design:

Some of y'all may remember the pendant from several months ago. It's part of a necklace now. I really enjoy wearing it.

I kept to the informal beach-y theme by keeping the necklace assymetrical.


ss, fw pearls, bone skulls, Russian Amazonite, African Turquoise, & impression jasper

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Thank you!

    Yes, Aqua Chickie Cat, there are 2 skulls. One is tiny and in the back. The other one is in front on the left as you’re looking at the necklace. I kinda like them. Plus, this ia Caribbean necklace, and it’s my little salute to Captain Jack Sparrow.

    Gimme that horizon. Where’s the rum?
