Last May marked our first Girl’s Weekend down the Cape. We stayed in a beachfront hotel, bundled up in layers and basked in the glow of a gas fireplace (early May can still be chilly along the New England coast), explored the towns and antique shops, and of course ate lots of food.
In designing this necklace set for my Aunt L, I kept that Girl’s Weekend in mind. The mint colored beads remind me of the salty ocean spray and the color palate of the Cape. The findings came from one of the antique shops we discovered on our journey.
The necklace is long enough to be slipped over the head, but it also contains a clasp just in case. The earrings are large baubles and so cute against the the long drop of the necklace.
The intention of the necklace was for my Aunt L to wear it to work or for an evening out. Pastels seem to be the “In” color for spring 2016, and this necklace will fit right in.
