Well, if it hasn’t actually sprung, it is hoping to spring soon.  Admittedly, I live in a very temperate climate, but even here in sunny Southern California it’s been chilly.  I am looking forward to the daily grind of wearing flip flops, t-shirts, and shorts.

In anticipation of warmer weather, I recently made a necklace with one of my favorite stones–aquamarine.  About a year ago, I purchased a strand of rough, faceted, aquamarine nugget beads.  I have used them sparingly in my designs, and since they are of varying shapes and sizes, there are a lot of options.  For example, the long, narrow nugget used in this necklace screamed pendant to me.  Actually, it also screamed choker, but I chose instead to go with my original thought and made it a long pendant necklace.

The chain is 18″ long and the pendant itself hangs about 2″.  It is a sleek, sexy necklace that will work well for both spring and summer.  So what are we waiting for?  Bring on the sun!
