All year long, the cactus waits for rain so it can release a flower bud, anticipating the moment it can burst to life. Much like when we wait for fall to save us from long days and sweltering blacktops, the soothing autumn air moves in and blesses the cactus with just a kiss of precipitation so its flower can bloom. The warm copper accents in this necklace are cooled by small drops of turquoise-jade pearls, a refreshing combination perfect for fall fashion.
