Some accidents are meant to happen!! - Love Birds - Necklace - My Newest Design

This necklace was designed purely accidentally!! I had made a cluster of gorgeous fuschia-colored swarovski bicone crystals in assorted sizes for another design. When I put it together I hated it, so I just dumped the gorgeous cluster of crystals to the side, really annoyed that I had wasted all that time for a design that didn't work (anyone who works with 4mm swarovski bicones knows that they aren't that much fun to turn the head pins on!!)
Then I looked at it later and saw it sitting under the kissing birds connector and realized how beautifully the colors went together, so the 'Love Birds Necklace' was created!

The pics don't do show just how pretty the necklace is in real life, or how gorgeously rich the color of the swarovski crystals are!
When my 16 y.o. daughter saw the finished design, she tried to steal it, so I'm pretty sure she liked it!! She now wants me to make her one, I'll be pretty busy for a while making her all the designs that she has asked for, lol, at least she is a big fan of my jewellery!
