Ripple Effect - Preciosa

"My Czech Beads May Contest" , 

I wasn't sure if I would participate of "My Czech Beads May Contest" until I decided to google for wedding dresses around the world.
I spent a couple hours first fascinated, then inspired to create something that could fit one of those beautiful brides. I chose one from India to be my "muse".
She had this gorgeous dress in hot colors - red mainly and the richness of her gold jewelry definitely inspired me to create my Ripple Effect necklace that is my small contribution to May contest.
Material: Czech Ripple beads, Rocaille seed beads sizes 6/0, 10/0, and 11/0.
Pendant made using a Preciosa tutorial.....
