Haven necklace by redLillith Haven necklace by redLillith
what do you think? I'm calling it Haven, for lack of a better name. 12 opals, 2 moonstones, 2 pearls, 4 sodalites, and 30 AB crystal bicones. and lots of silver spacer beads . . . . yeah. and the key! lol. love that part. :) all strung on flex wire with silver toggle clasp.

part of a trade agreement with :iconhiddencaitastrophe: . . she's such a fan! :lol:

. . .. . see, I can do something that doesn't involve lace! is everyone shocked? :P

why thanks! keys are such unusual centerpieces . . . and hold so many different meanings for so many people. guess that is why they are so popular! :)

yep . . a key! one of my bestest bosom buddies (since 8th grade!) gifted me with such fun things to play with . . .she knows that jewelry is my current obsession so she decided to feed it. and she found these gloriously fun keys! I actually love keys . . . have tons of ornate ones hanging about (which no longer looks bizarre . .. and some of them actually fit the locks in this old house!).

just wait . . I did a bracelet too that I need to post. ;) more keys!

oohh . . funny you should say that . . checked my supplier for those opals, and found a great set of round 6mm garnets that are such a lovely deep red. ;) so, might be ordering both! as well as more of the blue goldstone . . found some that is faceted!

Dude.. I'm totally a fan! Especially of pretties that belong to me! lol

You already know I love this.. but I suppose I can actually "comment" on what an awesome mix of stones it is.. you used several of my faves.. the opals (obviously) but sodalite too.. and moonstones and pearls are always lovely! lol

I know . . and don't think I'm not grateful! :D I need all the encouragement I can get.

would you believe the sodalite didn't appear till the 3rd incarnation? thought I needed a bit of color to break up all that iridescent sparkliness . . . the pearls anchor it, but it needed something else. *shrugs* my logic is bizarre! :rofl:
