Flower Power

in: Necklace



The rich strawberry hues remind me of luscious fruit.  From the faceted cherry jade, to the Czech glass flowers with raspberry tint and a wash of mercury silver, to the Czech glass cruller beads, they are almost good enough to eat! (BTW, the term "cruller" is originally Danish, and refers to pastry that curls or folds onto itself).  The beads are all hand knotted on black cord, alternating with silver seed beads and pretty antique silver coin beads.  And the focal is a wow also - a big bold antique silver plate flower measuring 2" across.  On a crisp white t-shirt - wow!  The necklace is about 20" in length, and it closes with a silver plated toggle clasp.  As always, it's one-of-a-kind.
