Olivia II, The Silver Version

Olivia in Silver and Aqua
This new Olivia is antiqued silver over brass, and she is just as saucy and charming as the original.

I'm disappointed enough in my inability to capture this Olivia Octopus in her entirety to start with the treasures she gathered from the ocean floor. She still holds a nice, big cultured freshwater pearl, and some lovely little celestial larimars, a sprinkling of little hematite seed beads and little Czech glass copper seed beads, but also some fantastic golden shadow swarovski crystals (which are clear and have little gold striations running through them, though they aren't photographing well), a 6mm top-drilled simplicity cut swarovski, and a juicy 14mm aqua cosmic-cut swarovski crystal.

She is put together with antiqued silver over brass findings has a lobster clasp, and will be just as long as you'd like her to be (though, keep in mind, if she runs much over 20-24", there will be a small fee for the extra chain).

As a whimsical touch, up and to Olivia's left, just out of her reach and safe from harm, is a little dolphin charm hanging from one of those big, lovely pearls, a couple of celestial larimars and a little hematite bead.

Ms. Olivia II sells for $35.00.

I also have the makings for the original Olivia, where you can choose the metal colors and the colors of the stones used. Contact Adorn Me if you're interested.
