About this design:

I needed a long necklace to use with a black blouse so I created this one; I wired the Mother of pearl beads inside the shell disks then added the Black and white glass beads using pieces from the s silver chain between them.


Carved Mother of pearl, white Shell circles, Black and white Glass beads and sterling Silver chain

    Love the light airy feel of this one. Florida weather does not tolerate wearing anything too heavy in summer time humidity (lately worse than any I’ve experienced in 10 years.)
