This is a custom piece I made and Im so in love with it I wanted to be sure to show it off.

Ive used over thirty genuine Swarovski crystals in a fiery gradient of color as the centerpiece of this necklace. The piece is a traditional Y shape with sterling silver Figaro chain, a large round circle and then a cascade of crystal down the center.



It just sparkles and shines and catches the light like mad. The crystal ranges in color from a pale yellow, into orange, fire opal, topaz, garnet and more.

I plan on making more in various color schemes in the next few days because of how pleased I was with how this one came out. Grin

As always, thoughts and feedback appreciated!

It is beautiful Phoenix.  Just one concern/design question - there are 2 loops that go from the pendant to the large O ring, and it creates kind of a visual break.  IMHO, it doesn't seem to go with the rest of the necklace.

Thanks!

I actually left an empty link on purpose. I wanted it "lighter" on the top and then progress to fuller, "heavier" feel on the bottom. The first link has none and the second is actually where the light crystals start. Wink

That is amazingly simple, but very beautiful looking as well
