DIY Italian Necklace

I am currently studying abroad in Italy for the semester. The culture and surrounding art are very inspiring. I handcrafted a necklace that represents the landscape using pieces from local area.The gems and settings are from Martha Stewart Collection, but the blue stones are from the street markets in Florence. I combined the pieces using jump rings and connectors. The finalized necklace was photographed at Castiglioncello, Italy. The clear blue waters in the background mimic the same ice blue in the stones. Be sure to check out Instagram for more handmade necklaces and DIY projects.
