EBW September Challenge

The THEME is Indian Summer Dream. Here is my entry:

Indian Summer Dream - Pearls and Carnelian Necklace with Shell Pendant

Indian Summer Dream - Pearls and Carnelian Necklace with Shell Pendant
I made this lovely necklace with 4-5 mm carnelian beads and genuine 5 mm pearls. A pretty gold filled clasp closes the necklace. The pendant is made with a stunning 3.4" x 2.4" salmon pink abalone shell embellished with flowers made of carnelian cabochons, surrounded by size 15 Miyuki golden seed beads. The green leaves are made of the same tiny seed beads in shades of moss green. The stems made with small freshwater pearls complete the design.

Carnelian increases perception, precision, physical energy, provides protection against the emotions of fear and anger.
Pearls aid in physical healing, creativity and anger management. Mother of pearl offers protection and aids in relaxing and soothing the mind and body.

This necklace is a conversation piece. You can wear it on an evening out, as well as with a casual outfit. It is perfect for giving as a gift.

I made this necklace for the September Etsy Beadweavers Challenge, "Indian Summer Dream". You can find more beautiful entries by searching EBWC. More information in the team's Blog:
