These necklaces are something I have wanted to make for some time now. They are based on some of my old designs from probably 2002-2003. I wanted to make new ones because I never saved one for myself. I sold them all!
What I cannot communicate via photograph is the amount of sparkle in these necklaces. They are LOADED with Swarovski crystals. I’d estimate at least 100 crystals per piece, so when you are wearing them, they glow! Any white spec you see above is a mirror reflection of a crystal, so if you actually saw these necklaces you would notice the crystals first and the color second. Not true for this photograph though.
You’ll just have to take my word for it!
So back in the day, I would make these circular pendants (no hole in the center). They’d have a sterling silver backing and generally measure about 1 1/4 inch in diameter. For these new ones I made for myself, they are 3 inches in diameter. Big statement pieces.
With all the crystals, they can be a bit dressy.
Oh hubby, you need to take me out for dinner so I have somewhere to wear my new necklace!
What a coinkidink! I’m wearing your necklace today at work; the one you made with my grandboys’ photo! I get so many comments!
