Beached! That's where I want to be...... Snuggled in an easy chair, with a cool drink in my hand watching all the whales go by. I'll also gather some seashells in the crashing waves when I get bored. What would we do if we could not dream!
Wish I was the gal who really sat down and planned out my pieces but most (okay all) tend to develop as I go. I love the Royston turquoise stone with blue greens, browns cream and ivory colors flowing through the stone- truly a work of art by itself. As I bezeled the stone I found a stunning Natural Aqua Green Chalcedony rose cut gemstone which matched it beautifully.
The colors remind me of the beach so I kept on working adding small shells, water bubble stones etc. until I had a relaxing complimentary design. I finished it off with a few of my fused glass cabs in mocha and sea green color. The pendant is strung on a long sterling silver box chain.
The pendant has been bezeled and set in sterling silver. I hand cut, shaped, soldered etc to create a unique one of a kind design. It hangs on a box sterling silver chain, added a .999 pure hand formed silver shells and sterling silver dots.
The whole piece has been oxidized to create the antique rustic look. I also added a signature the piece on the back of the pendant.
Pendant alone is 83mm long. The overall length of the necklace is 24 inches long not counting the pendant. Of course on request it can be adjusted to your favorite length.
