Spotlight: Pink Lemonade, Greek Goddess, & Those are not acorns

Here I am delivering, as promised! Three new necklaces on spotlight today, and one has already been featured on an Etsy treasury! For those who don't know, treasuries are a way for people to display they're favorite items in a collection and occasionally the editors at Etsy will pick their favorites to display on the front page! When you go to the Etsy homepage, the first thing you see is a treasury that someone created, so if they pick the lovely treasury I was featured in, it would mean a lot of exposure for me. Moving on...

Here we have Pink Lemonade ($24), my favorite new wear-everyday necklace! It is bright, fun and very summery, which is why I will be wearing it all through the winter when the snow starts falling.

Materials: glass leaves, opaque glass yellow bead, gold plated flower charm, fuschia glass bead, gold plated chain. Hangs right at the collarbone, about 16" long, not adjustable

Next in line is the Greek Goddess ($42) which is made of natural stones and hangs from two different chains. It is simple but still makes a statement!

Materials: white Malaysian jade, green turquoise, gold plated chains, gold plated bead caps. Hangs around 24" long, is finished off with a toggle clasp and is not adjustable

And last, but not least, is Those are not acorns ($26). You'll have to go to the Etsy shop to see why it has such a weird name. There's a story behind it. This one is made from a REAL, live pine cone that has been electroplated in gold. Every necklace will be slightly different because every pine cone is slightly different.

Materials: gold electroplated pine cone (While cone-like in shape, these are actually the flowers of the alder tree. As this is a natural product, size and shape vary.), dark brown wooden beads, gold filled chain. Adjustable; hangs from about 17" to 18 1/2" long
