This design has been a best seller in my shop. The first time I made a necklace using these shells, it was for Jaymee. I know it's her favorite, but here's how she tells the story.
"I've never been a big jewelry wearer. My style (if you can call it that) is simple and maybe even a bit "organic." My small studded diamond earrings never leave my earlobes and up until recently the last time I purchased an actual necklace was for my wedding day back in 2006. I wasn't against jewelry, it has just never been something I put a lot of thought into.
When I started my own business I suddenly became aware that I needed to present a certain image to my clients. My goal was to look fresh, modern and put together. This meant an update to my wardrobe of course and this is also where Amber and my incredible and now kind of "famous" necklace come in.
I loved Amber's stuff from the very beginning, but nothing in her collection was exactly what I was looking for. I told Amber I wanted something colorful, but natural and I needed something that I could wear with a lot of stuff. (new business = small budget) I wanted to be able to wear it with jeans as well as with dress pants. My ultimate goal was one high quality piece of jewelry that I could wear with almost everything I owned.
A few days later I had this:
I goes with just about anything, from jeans to a nice dress. It just works. It hangs in the front of my jewelry box cuz it gets worn so much!!! I get compliments every time I wear it, even from people that have seen me wear it before. They say the colors look like they change with whatever top I have on, so they always think it's a new piece.
I love it Amber!!
