Making the Perfect Beaded Gemstone Necklace

Being a jewelry designer has it’s definite advantages.  Having the perfect jewelry to go with the perfect dress that makes you feel like royalty is one of those advantages!

1DressI recently had a trip to Florida as an ambassador for Cousin Corporation.  I had the perfect dress for our cocktail party on the beach, but the necklace I normally wore with the dress sold right off my neck last time I wore it.  So it was time to design something new for this glamorous resort gown!

I wanted to pull in the tropical coral and orange tones.  The cream, red and shades of green just flow together so lusciously in the flower detail.  Yes, it’s just dreamy! So I mirrored the color palette with the beads I chose!  I used a magnasite butterfly as the focal and added accent beads, crystals and pearls from Cousin to embellish and complete the look.

The finished design was the perfect balance of tropical luxury I envisioned when I started the necklace.  I loved the colors so much, I think I’ll be creating a cuff to match – that way I can wear one or the other piece, or both for a bold statement!
