YOJ 2007 Week 19 - Woman Necklace

Last year I was approached by Debi Johnson (http://torchdancerstudio.com) to help her create bails for her fabulous glass shells. As soon as I lay eyes on these shells, I knew they would match perfectly with some rhodochrosite beads I had. I created the neckpiece with a real shell and a thai silver shell, and the usual underwater critters: a seahorse, an angel fish and a tiny lobster. So far, I have created two of these fantastic necklaces, one just recently for my MIL who turned 60 and celebrated her bday at Disneyland, no less.
