I was playing around with shades of orange blends. When I got this particular color blend, I thought of calla lilies, and decided to make a flower. Of course, it needed leaves. I chose to make the piece simple with clean lines rather than using a lot of texture and veining. It seemed the piece would make a nice focal in a necklace and, as I played with placements, the off-center spot seemed ideal. When I found the natural coral chips, I knew I'd found the perfect compliment for the flower.
The photo on the right gives a good idea of how the whole necklace looks.
