Paisley Peacock Necklace

I've been itching to show this one off, but I had to wait! It was a custom order for a friend, and he gave it to his fiancee for Valentine's day. He says she absolutely loved it - which I absolutely loved to hear!
When he first came to me for a custom order, he said she loves mettalic colors, swirls, and anything peacock. I came up with a quick sketch design and sent it off to him. He approved the design and off I went!
I started with a glass swarovski pearl, teardrop shaped. Around that I beaded with delica beads, in brick stitch. After finishing the four petals I assembled them the way I thought they would sit best, and added a swarovski crystal drop. The chain is gold filled, and the ovals are large enough to clasp on to, so that the necklace can be worn either long or choker style. I can't wait to see the necklace on her, she is very beautiful already...so I'm sure this necklace compliments her well!
