"I have been fortunate to have more time to create. That is the only thing Multiple Sclerosis has given me! I love being in my craft room, looking through beads or fabric or trims. Being inspired by color and texture! I found that being an artist involves more than the joy of creating...you have to sell your creations! I found Etsy and some truly creative artists. I have done better selling my jewelry at local shops and boutiques.

I visualized this necklace as fresh and crisp and wanted all focus to be on the large chunk of turquoise. Hand-twisted wire surrounds a suspended, natural shaped piece of stunning turquoise! A large delicate silver leaf adds lends drama and length. Each of the six dangles compliment, but don't detract from, the main attraction. I used glass tube beads, smaller turquoise pieces and faceted aqua glass beads accented with the sparkle of silver. The bold silver chain secures with a toggle clasp.
I wanted to create a necklace that was an all-out eye catcher! I loaded this piece with an arsenal of wicked good stuff. The main attraction is the large turquoise bead. Three strands hold a variety of beads in silver, aqua and black. Red adds an unexpected pop of color! Cast a spell wherever you wear this showstopper."
