Red Rose, Snow White~~Red Coral, Rock Crystal and White Pearl Long Necklace
A favorite fairy tale of mine, Snow White; Rose Red, is German tale collected by the Grimm brothers. In the story, the girls are sweet and kind and rescue a bear, who it turns out, is a prince under the spell of a wicked dwarf. I was inspired by the sisters, Rose Red, who is obviously an extrovert who loves to play outside, and Snow White, the indoor type of girl.
Snow White Rose Red tried to capture this tale with deep red coral, and innocent, sweet white coin pearls. I added in clear faceted rock quartz crystal, to represent the stones the dwarf stole from the bear. I worked in antiqued silver hammered links, and a few extra crystals! 32.5 inches in length. Necklace $75; Earrings $15
I did make another pair of earrings in red coral, antiqued hammered silver links and tiny czech glass pearls, if you'd prefer red.Click here to buy on Etsy.
