About this design:

I wanted to make a "waterfall" necklace so I used gemstones,seed beads,and pearls to create this multi strand necklace. Had a heck of a time getting it to lay correctly...

    I love the set! The necklace lays perfectly. it is a wonderful color and design. I enjoy picking the fresh picks! I get a chance to use my inagination , learn and get inspired from others. I also get ideas from the designs, but I can say that I haven’t used either for any designs yet. I don’t know what I am waiting for.

    Gorgeous…love the symmetry of the strands-yet at the same time, they create an asymmetric look to the necklace. Bet it is stunning on.
