New Summer Designs: A layering necklace and Lots of color


I wear this necklace - the version I made for myself - practically everyday. If you know me, you know that I almost never wear just one necklace, so this is definitely my ultimate layering piece.  But it works beautifully all by itself, and just for fun, I've shown it layered in the bottom picture with the Mexican Milagros collar necklace.
The Y necklace is composed of three different sizes of handmade metal chain, 34 inches maximum length.  Includes three finishing dangles: open metal heart, large round gray pearl, large oval white pearl. $275 includes tax, shipping and a 1:1 tutorial with me, in person or via Skype, to learn all the different ways to wear.  
I promised you some color, so here it is!
Regarding the photo to the left; to quote Iris Apfel: More is more and less is a bore!
This ensemble is created from four single strand necklaces layered over the red/turquoise/pearl three-tier collar necklace with attached pottery pendant.
Each strand is unique and is composed of a combination of different shaped red coral, red lampwork beads, different shaped turquoise, white pearls, red and gray rubber rings, and metal links.
Individual strands can be worn double, quadrupled or long, as shown.  Each strand: $95.
Again, I will work with you on how to wear many different ways.
