After seeing some of the necklaces I'd made Mrs. Booger, her aunt wanted one made for her birthday. She wanted me to use this as a reference but with a more golden/purple/garnet theme and with garnets on silver links instead of strung pearls.
Of course, I told Booger it would NOT be $178 :)
So I put this lovely together:
Garnet buttons on sterling silver links with a pendant made of sterling chain, sterling wire, and briolettes.
From left to right: tourmaline, faceted garnet, faceted iolite, faceted golden fluorite, tanzanite, faceted garnet, and tourmaline.
Kimberlee LOVES her necklace and now wants matching earrings. Unfortunately this poses a bit of a challenge as I don't have any matching golden fluorite briolettes so it looks like it's going to be iolite and garnet.
