I loved mine so much, I HAD to make more!

A sun shimmery gold and a tangerine orange are the ingredients for this one. They have a summery lightness about them which makes them easy to wear and their inexpensive price tag means they sit as well with a bikini as they do with everyday street wear.

The orange hue of this shell is really rather fantastic. It is rare - I don't see many of these, so I HAD to pick it up.

This one has a larger brass leaf with a sun bleached shell and a twist of turquoise. Perhaps these are a homage to the summer that is beginning to fade here. The axis shifts and I watch as the sun begins to shorten its arc across my part of the hemisphere.

Depending on the length of your day you can adjust the length of these necklaces, should you so desire, a little detail that I'm really rather pleased with. Simple and effective with no fuss or fanfare.
Été au revoir!
