Spring Fairy Necklace

March 16, 2009


I love pastel colors and the weighty feel of certain gemstones. So, while digging around in my box of goodies pulled out these amazing adventurine nuggets that I've been saving for a rainy day. On a recent trip to one of my favorite findings manufacturers, Wolfe E Myrow, I also grabbed some gorgeous fire polished Czech beads in a stunning Jonquil color. (some of which I will be adding to my Etsy shop)


The necklace was created using sterling silver and alternating the stones to create a 16" choker. I also added two more inches using Czech beads as an extender and finished with a hand forged sterling clasp.

As the focal piece I've used a carved Amazonite leaf and created a small flower that sits nicely on top of it using iridescent pink Drusy beads and a Swarovski center.
I'd debated keeping it for myself or putting into my Etsy shop. I usually post things I've created on my Facebook page to show family and friends first. A wonderfully talented polymer clay artist,
Cheri Desiree purchased it shortly after it was posted.
