YOJ 2005 Week 34

The theme for this week is "Spring spectacular" and... you already guessed: I didn't fulfill the theme at all. It seems like I'm on a mission to make marine theme designs and also rings. I just can't help it!

This necklace was made to match the Pink Paella bracelet created for week 26:


Pink Paella necklace.

The piece measures 2.5 inches wide and has a variety of interesting materials. The top row has a silver hilltribe shell, a natural shell and a hard-to-find natural banded chalcedony nugget. The bottom row displays two large pearls flanking two very rare real angel skin coral rondelles (not dyed). The briolettes are pink opals.
