Holler for Hoops Revisited

This is a gorgeous peacock green with copper accent necklace I created out of an older pattern by Jonna Holston called "Holler for Hoops"   I love to use this easy pattern made with a simple peyote stitch.  I then added the double St. Petersburg chain with crystals.  On this chain I used a metalic green triangle.  I wanted to attach the chain in a pleasing manner so I stretched it out with the 4mm Swarvoski bicone.  I love the sparkle of the 2X AB that comes in soooo many beautiful colors.  I started with the "three leaf clover" in the center and continued to make the ear rings until I felt "enough is enough".    I then made a single row peyote set of earrings and folded them over to pull the crystals into the centers.  What do you think?  Here is a closer view to the attached chain and one of the "three leaf clover" but the picture does not do it justice. 
Here are the ear rings.  They are much prettier than this picture but at least it gives you an idea of how I folded the petals forward.
Have a GREAT week! 
Life is good and today is all we are promised.
Drop me a line if you like my newest...
