In My Dreams...Ocean Jasper Pendant
It's like an aerial view of a beautiful lagoon - you know the one they always have in the movies with the giant romantic waterfall? Looking into the depths, layers upon layers of different textures and colors and all of them in soft hues of blue, green, purple, and white and grey.
I added a strand of 5mm faceted white Howlite saucers, Ametrine Rondelles along with 8mm Tree Agate beads and beautiful puffed oval beads of Fancy Jasper. It's very clean and quiet and elegant.
The clasp is a Bali Toggle and it's at the front! The pendant actually hangs from the toggle. It's adds loads of interest and makes it a breeze to hook on your own. At the very back - where the necklace will lay against your neck I used only the smaller beads for comfort. It will also make it so much easier to tuck the back under a collar if you choose.
This necklace measures about 22" long. The pendant hangs down another 1-3/4" and is 1-1/2" at its widest point.
