I am always looking for versatile, one of a kind necklaces. I wanted a piece that was elegant, yet contrasting. I handcrafted a necklace using the color palette from the fountains and copper oxidized green statues in Florence. The green beads represent the fluidity of the water. The spikes and silver represent the grays and coldness of the cement and stone. I set the gems into the silver settings. I attached them using jump rings. I then strung three strands of spikes and green beads and attached them using a clasp.
