Amber loves receiving special things with love from her grandmother. Amber loves going to Hawaii with her family and so I used this shell I had gotten in Maui to make this vintage looking necklace.

The twigs are looped onto a leather cord and then wrapped with brown waxed thread for a rustic look. A pmc leaf hangs off the side of this piece.

Good Luck Necklace

Winter is slowing coming to Bend and I am visiting my studio more often than I did in the summer.

Necklace measures 19 1/2" from neck to end of pendant.
