Frosted Folliage – Starry Night

About this design:

This piece was inspired by all the recent bad weather. I used labordorite and silver kelshi pearls to create the look of flozen foliage. Each stand was accented with a few lavender and pink crystals, to add to the icy look – these strands were then twisted together with some silver wire to create the focal. The remainder of the necklace was created by stringing peacock pearls and pink crystals.

    Katherine, this is a very pretty design. Just what someone needs to bring them into summer. I love how you made the front of the necklace look so full and then tapered of with the row of rounds. Very nice.
