    This is quite a dramatic piece. I have a few of those large connectors that I bought here on LB, and I’ve never been able to think of anything to do with them. But you nailed it.

    Perfect depiction of your title. Tierra Cast has a line of celestial drops. This is superb just the way it is.

    Althea- such a pretty necklace. I love the theme as well! Your pieces are bold and strong- when I see them I automatically see them on a soft feminine cashmere sweater or silk tank. Something that would showcase contrast- does that make sense? anyway, they are beautiful!

    Thanks for your kind words, K Ralston, dolllady and Robin. We live in the country, far from city lights, so the night sky and the celestial display are always so visible. It really inspired me to create this necklace.

    Beautiful Althea. The blue and silver are great together. I also love the night sky.

    Althea, you always do a great job in picking out the right components for your designs. I love the silver swirl spacers used with this celestial theme. I see planets in the focal, and the moon drop is perfect. When we moved here 25 years ago, the night sky was a dark, starry wonder. Now, with all the bustling growth in the area, I long for those evenings spent star gazing in the quiet of the night. Enjoy your country dark skies!
