Who is this project for? Women

What materials did you use? Aqua Terra Jasper, sterling silver, sterling chain, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, mainly. The long piece is basically 4 sections - 2 strung and 2 wired, connected by 2 pieces of chain. The piece can be worn so than the large crystal hangs at the front or at the side; if it's at the front, the toggle clasp is at the side and the pretty group of crystals, pearls, etc. hangs down the lovely lady's neck for a couple of inches.

What are you most proud of? My wired connections are getting to be pretty darn close to - well, round! And I really like the name for this one, because the aqua terra beads do look like little earths, and the pearls come from the water and the crystals are fiery in appearance.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a palette, because there are a pretty good number of beads in this necklace; and be patient. It's a time burner. But the aqua terra beads are fun to work with. They look like little earths with continents on top of seas.

I love it! Absolutely stunning, gorgeous colors and clever arrangement of beads. Good work!

Thanks, Muddypaws! I've seen your name before and wondered if you have dogs or work in clay. Anyway, I really appreciate our comment on my work.
