Like I promised, here are the photos of the resulting necklace that I designed using those fabulous hammered rocks.


I decided to go with a triple strand necklace, and play on the soft Spring like pastel shades of aquamarine, butter yellow, rose pink and white. I wanted to do something different and go with a contrasting design using rough with smooth, classic with modern, chunky with sophisticated, so I pulled out my collection of vintage pearls. I had some wonderful vintage classic faux pearls in all of those colors, so decided that they would be the contrast to the rough organic stones.




Of course, I had to add some of that fabulous Swarovski sparkle with the tiny clear and rose colored crystals. Some vintage rhinestone triple connectors keep that classic look alive. I also found some real aquamarine gemstones hiding in one of my jars and incorporated them through the necklace to carry that organic feeling throughout the piece.




Sterling silver wire, chain, clasp and beads complete this modern yet fun fashion necklace. Pin It

Wow - that turned out fantastic. I love the mix of the rock quartz with the pearls - the rocks have a sea glass look about them. Just beautiful.

Wow. I wasn't sure how you would incorporate those into something to make it your own and this just blows me away!!! Every new piece of yours I see is so complex and stands out from the rest. Lovely!
