Life is 'trying things to see if they work' ~ Ray Bradbury

Waterfall pendant - sterling silver, Czech galss beads, chainmaille :: All the Pretty ThingsBy now everyone reading my blog knows I like the colour blue - pretty much in any shade there is. The 2 most loveliest (in my eyes, at least) shades are turquoise and sky-blue.

So there is no surprise to anybody, including myself, that when I enter a store I am drawn to all the blue items. Make that the bead store and I never leave the store without something blue. And before you even think about it: no, not with anything borrowed!

A couple of years back, when I discovered one of the bead stores in Toronto (well, more like the bead street, since at every few doors there is an art / craft / bead store) I also discovered a very pretty blue-sky stone. It looks like the blue lace agate, but I am not sure if it is that, most likely not. I had to had them so I bought them :)

Waterfall: pendant & earrings set - sterling silver, Czech galss beads, chainmaille :: All the Pretty ThingsThey stayed in my stash for quite a long time until early this year when I was looking for something to wear with a shirt I love and all the necklaces were either the wrong length or the wrong colour. This cannot be! so my 'Waterfall' set was born.

It is made with sterling silver (the chain) and silver plated elements (the frame and findings) and Czech beads, a cascade of water droplets with a foamy stone at the drop. I wore it endless times this summer - since my summer dresses and tops are all white or blue (big surprise there, eh?!) and it goes perfectly with pretty much anything: pants, jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses. It can be flirty or quietly elegant and it is a great addition to your attire.

Do you have a preferred piece of jewelry? Does it tell a story?
