Snowflake Necklace

In all of my daydreaming about Anthropologie lately, I was reminded again this week about a gorgeous necklace they once carried in 2008 - the Snowflake Necklace. Metal and crochet are what makes up the pretty little "snowflakes".

Here is the version I ran across this week while flipping through a Fire Mountain Gems catalog that came in the mail. This designer made "snowflakes" out of seed beads and also encorporated a filigree piece to tie it all together in the front. She was a finalist in a contest they were having, and rightfully so! Very detailed and gorgeous!



Here's the version I made (and posted about) back in 2008. I took an easier route and made my entire piece out of the filigree pieces. I still love this necklace, 4 years later. Statement necklaces like this look best on plain tops or dresses. They can really change the look of an outfit!
