I am thinking about making a necklace that would make one think of a waterfall.  Any ideas? 

My friend had an idea of something like graduated drops with the longest being about  3 inches, using silver and blue sparklies.  I can almost hear the waterfall.

Just looking for some ideas??   thanks.

Sounds good to me.  You could also use bent wire too to simulate the rippling of water too, and if you cut and bend the wire, also use a hammer to hammer one end flat, and get some texture along the wire to simulate the water, and drops.  I would intersperse that with clear/AB/misty crystal drops on fine silver chains for some movement, longer than the wires, to simulate the drops and foam at the base of the waterfall

hello,  Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been thinking about my waterfall necklace.  I visited this waterfall yesterday and it was a beautiful day.  There were still lots of icicles around and some snow.  I'm thinking of using some "icicles" in my piece.  One person described the color of the water as aqua blue.  I was thinking sort of a tealish, greenish, blue.

I hope to develop my creation soon.  thanks.

Swarovski makes tear drop crystals. I suggest using them and wiring some together in a downward pattern to simulate the waterfall effect! Good luck! Grin

thanks for some great ideas!  I'll be working on this project, in the next couple of days.  I am trying to imagine these ideas.

Onyxnox - with the bent wire, do you mean something like a wave, up and down, like a mountain and a valley? 

illuminatingone -- The crystals will sparkle, for sure!

I plan to work with a blue crazy lace agate for one of my pieces.  I'll probably end of with 3 pieces, maybe sets.  And, maybe, I will get over my fears about posting photos.

thanks.

Yes, hanging down, and if you can hammer the bottom end flatter so that it widens a bit, and have them in graduated sizes.  You could play with using chain or jumprings to add crystals in between for sparkle or to represent spray.

In the most recent issue of Stringing Magazine (Spring 2011) they have several necklaces with the spring showers theme- one uses a beautiful dotted lampwork oval that really simulates drops of water on it.

thanks.  I located my Spring 2011 Stringing magazine, among a couple of jewelry books, Hancock's sale paper and patterns.

oh yeah,  I have been somewhat inspired by the back cover of this magazine for my waterfall collection.

I've made a few pieces, but not the danglies.  That's next!
