Aqua Blues Necklace

One of my newest creations uses the free-form wire wrapping technique I learned in a class last year with Nina Bagley. I put together an eclectic cluster of beads to feature as the "pendant" part of this necklace. Included are chrysocolla, amazonite, abalone, crystal, freshwater pearls and a glass leaf. All in the ocean inspired colors of aqua blue and green. All of the silver is sterling and I oxidized it for a slightly distressed look. I've added one small turquoise bead at the clasp end for a finished look to the necklace.
