flutter necklace

This collar - style necklace was made for a friend who said "give me garnets and butterflies!" So I complied.

A wire base keeps the shape and width of the frame. Garnet chips and black seed beads meet a matching enameled butterfly with gold plated wire support in the middle, and gold spacer bars with an adjustable gold chain in the back.

The topmost picture is of my first attempt, before we decided that in this case, less was more.
