Gifts from the Sea

About this design:

When I designed under the sea beauties I could not decide between the silver and the brass metal, the silver metal won but I liked the effect of the brass so I decided to do another one using the brass with blue corals and this design was created.
I used two Filigree Squares and joined them with the insides facing each other so the filigree will always face the right side with the movement; I used jumprings to attach them together.
For the bracelet I joined the rest of the filigrees with pieces of chain and crystals also using jumprings.


Antique gold plated Filigree Squares, Blue Coral, antique bronze Bead Caps, golden metal Flowers, Montana Swarovski Crystal and Metal Chain

    oh, good! I was going to ask to see the bracelet. I love the bracelet. So cleverly connected in the filigree, terriffic job! what a lot of work to be sure everything faced just right! I would have to take it apart a few times to figure that out! The coral is super, and the necklace is too!
