Winter Flower necklace

Last month I bought some beautiful apatite faceted rondelle beads. They are a lovely neon blue colour and I have teamed them with a delicate blue aquamarine to make this Winter Flower necklace.


WINTER FLOWER
Apatite & Aquamarine Sterling Silver Double Petal Wire Flower Necklace

You may recognise the 'double petal' design from my Autumn Flower necklace I made last October with different shades of carnelian. This time I chose a winter themed colour palette. I am already planning a Spring Flower necklace – what colours do you think I should use for that one?

  3. Thank you Jenn - you're right this design has certainly 'grown' from my more simpler flowers - I'm so glad you like.

    Hi Angela - thanks for stopping by and thanks for your lovely words. I can't stay away from flowers in my jewellery.

  4. I love the wirework in this - it's something I'd definitely like to have a go at once my hands are all better. Lovely photography too - I think that makes all the difference!

  5. Hi Jennie - welcome to my blog. I really enjoyed making this flower necklace and returning to a previous design. Thanks for your kind words and appreciation of my photos - I find that taking photos of my jewellery is all part of my artistic process and I always strive for the most interesting angle/best lighting.

  9. I love this one! It's complex but it still looks very simple and sweet and the colour is gorgeous. As for the Spring version... maybe a fresh green (like peridot)? Whatever you choose, I'm sure it will be beautiful :)

  10. Hi kendalee - This apatite is such a lovely colour and although I have said 'winter themed', I know it works for summer as well. As far as my 'Spring Flower' goes, you and I have the same idea... I have made a flower using peridot and prehnite, just need to make it into a necklace... watch this space!
