This necklace takes color inspiration from the patina focal at the center of the design. It's full of rich brassy, teal, and turquoise tones that speak of vintage beauty. Cynthia even accented the design with textured TierraCast beads full of leafy detail. Cynthia made this necklace during a Facebook Live Design Challenge. You can watch her create this piece and other designs here.
