Summer Afternoon

About this design:

A hot summer afternoon sun is the inspiration for this necklace and boy have we had our share of HOT summer afternoons here in the Philly area this year!I've had the yellow magnesite beads for a while just waiting for the right accents. Nice warm brown (dyed) howlite disks and copper spacers and beads.


Yellow magnesite daggers, yellow turquoise ovals, brown howlite, copper spacers ,beads, and toggle (from LB)

    I feel your pain Linda. Here in Charlotte, NC we had over 21 days when it was 95 and above. We’ve even had several days over 100. And with the humidity level hovering around 100% – Phew – we’re sure ready for a break.
    Your necklace reminds me of the sun – I can feel the heat radiating from it.
    Great color combo – love it…..
