Blue Blue Sky Necklace (goes with earrings posted a while ago)

About this design:

This is the 'extreme' wire wrapped sterling necklace I started working on after I finished the Blue Blue Sky Earrings. The 2 large London Blue Topaz stones move gently as you wear it, as do the other smaller stones! It's fun to wear either dressy or casual.

Wanted something curving and simple to hold the beautiful step-cut and fan shaped London Blue Topaz which measure as follows:

London Blue Topaz Chubby Step Faceted Briolette - 12.35 Carats

London Blue Topaz Fan Cut Focal Briolette - 14.95 Carats

Finished with lots of wire wrapped dangling stones in white topaz and micro-faceted white and sky blue topaz.


See above.
