This necklace is less inspired by the ocean and more inspired by a lake (if only because i live in Michigan) but i assume they are similar in a lot of ways.
I have a cottage on one of the lakes, and my favorite thing to do is to watch the sunset over the water. The way the water sparkles on a lightly windy day is just beautiful
That is what inspired this necklace. The beads sparkle just as the waves do at sunset, and there is the light surf at the shore. I used thick circular, and twisted square wire which was wrapped with half-round wire at the joins. The ends of the wire were filed before being twisted in to spirals. The other side of the necklace is just an assortment of ocean colored beads all ending with the white crystals at the end for the surf. It's hard to see in the picture, but the beads all shine with different intensities, and different colors, just like the waves.
Looking at this now it looks like a waterfall too.
now for the pics!
This part really makes me think of the sparkly waves!
me wearing it!!! (i think i need to get a dress to match my necklace)
