Inspired by a midnight vision of waterfalls falling off of cliffs, this necklace was made with freshwater pearls, sea-green aventurine chips, gold and silver mussel-shell coins, mother-of-pearl cube beads, dark shell beads and a sprinkle of aqua semi-precious gemstone beads to accent.
It measures 17″ around and has a toggle clasp.
I used two strands of heavy silk, one goes around the top row of the necklace and the other goes up and down the strands that hang down. There is a jump-ring through each coin and a split ring to attach that to the silk thread so it won’t slip off. I knot between each bead to keep everything in it’s place.
