Quite some time ago I fell in love with a Sea Urchin bead from Heather Powers, a polymer clay artist who sells her work on both etsy and from her website . Heather posted an absolutely beautiful necklace on her blog. I loved the necklace so much that I had to make my own version. I originally intended to make mine exactly like Heather's but it just didn't work that way for me. I tend to work in a monocromatic or very low contrast pallet when making both quilts and jewelry. I guess I just find it soothing to do so.
My version of Heather's necklace uses some beautiful freshwater keshi pearls, faceted amazonite rounds, 2 lampwork beads from an ebay artist, sterling silver beads and findings, and seedbeads.
I can't wait for summer to start wearing it again.
