Turquoise and Silver - Shimmering Like A Window To The Sea - New Necklace by Dimples and Dragonflies

I'm In Love With This Newest Necklace!  To Me, It's Simple Yet Sophisticated!
22 Inches Of Tiny Alternating 3.5 - 4mm Old French Trade Beading Joined With A Textured, Hand Cut Sterling 1 Inch Heart.  I Also Added A Pale Green 21mm Amethyst Charm That Is Hand Wrapped In .925 Sterling Wire.
I Love How The Raised Texture Turned Out On The Heart; It's Been Slightly Oxidized To Really Bring Out Its True Virtue.
As An Added Feature To The Simple Design, I Added Five Sterling 4mm Beads That Run Up The Right Side Of The Beading.  A Contemporary Touch I've Noticed A Lot Of Designers Using Lately.
Even Though This Beading Is Lightweight and Tiny, I've Carefully Soldered All My Jump Rings Closed.  With All My Pieces, I Consider The Additional Support Worthy...Because To Me, There's Nothing Worse Than A Jump Ring Separating While Wearing One Of Your Favorite Necklaces, And Suddenly All Your Beading Ends Up Falling With Gravity.
I'll Be Listing This Sweet New Piece In My Etsy Shop Shortly.  Hope Everyone's Enjoying A Beautiful Tuesday!
