Treasured Rose, A Romantic Era Necklace

Beautiful celluloid roses, oh, how I love thee!

The focal point of this one of a kind, Romantic period necklace is a gorgeous baby blue lucite rose. It is combined with 8mm Aquamarine Celsian Czech glass melon beads, and a fat wire-wrapped, faceted aqua quartz briolette. This is a necklace to treasure.

The colors in these melon beads are dreamy. Aquamarine and teal mix with golden greens in ways that make it hard for me to look away (I've already admitted here that I'm a magpie, so no surprise!). The cherry on the sundae is the light luminous iridescent they have, so that they glow and pick up the light to stunning advantage.

The melon beads travel up the necklace about 4 1/2" on each side, and then antiqued brass chain takes over and meets in the back, with a lobster claw clasp, as well as a brass hand that says "hand made" and a wrapped, matching melon bead.

The necklace is about 18 1/2" in length, but can be made longer or shorter at your request.

We have several other lovely necklaces featuring these roses, in different colors, as well as flower rings on filigree bases, and a lime-colored rose bracelet. More bracelets are on their way!

Just so you know, I bought the rose from Wendy and the beads from Gwynne. If you're unsure of who Wendy and Gwynne are, see this journal entry.

Tina,

I just can't stop saying it: you amaze me with the stunning work that you do! Just beautiful! I don't know how you manage to keep such a wonderfully productive shedule. What's your secret? ;)

My secret is that I'm disabled and can't work a regular job. Some days I can't work at all; other days I get a lot done. Most employers won't stand for that kind of inconsistency. :c) If I had to work your hours I could never do it, Cindy.

Thank you for your kind remarks!
