The length is versatile- it can be worn as a single long necklace or doubled to form a choker. Perfection!
It takes forever for a piece to go from an inkling in my mind to a listing on Etsy. The majority of the time it takes to get it listed goes towards getting the photos right. Sometimes it takes multiple attempts to get a few usable shots. Then the hard part starts- finding a way to describe it that will do it justice. My thesaurus has gotten a serious workout since I started selling on Etsy.
I tried on the Marie necklace before the Greenville Road Warriors hockey game tonight, and it's SO pretty on. Just the perfect length, and the combination of silvery blue-white keshi pearls, white topaz, and blue topaz was just so dreamy. It made me feel like Cinderella getting ready for the ball. It's going to be hard to part with this one.
A little bit about me. I'm an Army brat that's finally somewhat settled after a childhood spent....everywhere. We just moved to Upstate South Carolina, and I've got to say, I love it here!
