My inspiration for this piece was a stunning image of Bora Bora. The beautiful blues and sea green shades glistening with that water clearly reflected (pun intended) these crystals and Venetian glass beads. The design is simple and fun to make using any combination of beads and colored wire for earrings or a statement piece necklace.
