Chunky flower necklaces are being seen on TV anchorwomen and fashion magazines. The ones I checked out were rather heavy. I made a lighter version in a classy Grey and Ivory color combination.
For this any season and neutral color necklace I used:
1. Mother of pearl discs (10 - 1" diameter x 2 mm thickness)
2. Ivory and Grey Chrysanthemum flowers to enhance them (3/4 " 5 each of ivory and grey flowers)
3. Wired them into a necklace - added (i) a Mother of Pearl bead, (ii) an ivory flower and (iii) a grey fresh water pearl at the clasp end for added interest
4. White metal findings to compliment the Grey overtones of the necklace
The necklace can be worn from 17" to 22" - the lobster clasp can be hooked to multiple rings.
Care: Mother of pearl is porous and chemicals to clean must be avoided. A moist towelette would be fine.
