Garden Salsa Interpretation

About this design:

I was SO struck by A Juneau's Fresh Pick (back in January) titled 'Garden Salsa' - I loved it and kept coming back to it again & again. I decided to make myself a necklace based on it. I hope I did it justice.


Chrysoprase nuggets, glass flower beads (mustard, turquoise), fire-polished beads (red, pink coral, black, turquoise), chinese crystal bicones (seafoam), Jangles ceramic pendant...
