Skill LevelIntermediate

I played around with a concept that I'd already made into the Ponderosa Pines bracelet to see how it would look with Swarovski crystals in necklace form. I love the way it turned out.

This necklace perfectly captures the lush look of Tuscan olive groves and cypress trees glowing in the afternoon sun. Swarovski Bicones and Rizo beads provide the perfect shades of green, while TierraCast components bring artisan accents. You'll love the tubular herringbone rope at the center of this rich design.
