Crimson and Clover

About this design:

I love gemstones and these are some others that I'd had in reserve for a while -- large laser cut faceted Garnet with HUGE laser cut faceted Honey Citrines. The smaller stones are Tundra Sapphires wired in little 'scallop' shapes between the angular triangular shapes of the link gold chain.

It was a fun necklace to make and even more fun to wear! A little tricky to get all the tiny jump rings to line up and hold everything together, but finally got it just right and it lays nicely on the neck.


See above.
