Green Lotus Necklace

About this design:

My inspiration came from a pick by Joyce called "gaea appreciation society" :) It is made up of iris green FWP drops, green garnet roundells, and czech glass roundells all from LB. Thanks LB! I don't know if I'll redo it yet but this is the first design I came up with. Hope you like it chickies :D
