Spring is here. Yes it is. Here to stay for a while…I hope. Three days ago it was howling and storming so hard I thought the house was going to blow down and then we’d drown from the rain. Now it is clear and sunny. So desperate was I for Spring to begin I made a spring-inspired necklace called, of all things, ‘Printemps’. And no, I didn’t name it after the department store in Paris, but Printemps is French for ‘spring’.
Its beautiful gelato colours contrast nicely with serene creamy pearls and a divine Anne Choi sterling silver bead. The bead is hand made and cast into silver. Anne does some wonderful work and her limited edition beads are quite sought after. I used hand-wired freshwater pearl chain and combined the bead with pink and yellow sapphire gemstones. A big teardrop Baroque pearl hangs from the bottom as well.
It’s such a happy and colourful design, but not in any way over the top. For sale at L’Atelier de Talaru.
