Jewellery set with Geranium and Hyacinth

Jewellery set with Geranium and Hyacinth
This is a jewelery set with asymmetrical necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring. The beads are turquoise howlite. The turquoise colour of the howlite blends nicely with the pink and lilac of geranium and hyacinth cabochons. The nice vintage look was achieved through the use of bronze metal elements.
The bronze ring is adjustable in size, so almost anyone can wear them. The setting itself has nicely crafted antique style featuers. All you have to do is to glue a cabochon into the setting.
The asymmetric chain is put together easily. It takes about an hour to finish it. The chain consists of a double row of oval howlite beads which are fastened to the setting. The lace edge setting for the large cabochon is perfect for this design. Because you decide which eyes of the setting to unfold. Therefore we used to eyes at the bottom to mount the strands beads, and used to middle eye at the top for hanging the rolo chain. As a final step glue the cab into the setting. The setting should hang about halfway, to your collarbone.
For the earrings Art Nouveau style ear hooks were selected. A howlite bead connects the whole with the lace edge setting (with the glass cabochon). The main thing you want to watch, here is that you connect the eyes around the howlite bead such that the setting with the picture will point straight ahead.
