Finally Friday - Autumn Dew Reveal

Hello, Hello!
It's Friday. WooHoo :-)
Okay I am bias, I am off on Friday's.
I can't wait to show you the necklace I made this past weekend.
How fabulous is this color palette? I was worried about it but once I started designing it all came together beautifully.

It all started with this beautiful Marsha Neal Studio pendant. 

Then I added the periwinkle lucite round bead, hand wire wrapped it to the handmade lampwork glass bead from PinkBeach which I wire wrapped to a snow quartz round.

On the other side of the necklace I hand wire wrapped this porcelain donut from Round Rabbit to an etched copper circle which I made and I domed upward to give it a bowl like feeling, that was wire wrapped to a pink glass bead.
Up the back of the necklace are rose quarts lentil shaped beads which are separated by farfalle beads multiple shades of pink and purple.

I love how this necklace turned out. I wore it to work on Wednesday with a purple sweater to make sure it is comfortable and I kept forgetting I had it on.

Here is the palette I will be working with for next Friday, I do hope you will join me!
