Gypsy Necklace Designed For Alpha Stamps

I don’t often make jewelry but when I received the crescent moon connector and the round filigree from Alpha Stamps I thought they needed to be made into a necklace.  I used Liquid Pearls and Ranger Alcohol Ink on parts of the round filigree piece to give it the look of cloisonne.  After finishing the piece and looking at it for awhile I decide to add more beads where the chain connects to the filigree.
My friend Julia loaned me her pretty neck to model my necklace.
