Romantica Revisited

I have a new purple dress with a new missoni (ish) long swing coat that goes over it.  I wanted a long swingy necklace to compliment it and I wanted it in vintage pewter tones.

You know how I am always 'playing with possibilities'?  This indeed has a very romantica feel to it, but I changed it up first with the large swarovski elements disc, and then I used half tilas (brilliant) and Rizos and long megatamas in the medallions.

I love the look of old keys, although this one came on some pottery barn gift wrap.

The bottom drop is the new Swarovski Innovation raindrop pendant.  I love the shape and cut of this beautiful crystal.

I used different beads in each of the diamonds for the necklace and put some half tila breaks in to lacy it up a bit.

I also have a nifty clasp that will allow me to easily add an extender so I can wear this one short or long!

This one is for me!  Now for the matching earrings, and then back to the work of packing for our cruise!  We're off to the Bahamas for many days of beading fun!

It's beautiful and very romantic. Perfect for a midnight rendezvous on the deck of a ship...waiting by the railing with a martini in your hand...

It's been quite a long time since I've seen midnight!

me, too. But sometimes we just call it "Midnight in New York!" or "Midnight in London!" and pretend.

Dear Marcia,

you created an incredible beautiful necklace, I would like it for me, too. ;-)
I can imagine how nice it looks with your new clothes.
