Garden Gate

This is my submission to the January ABS challenge.  I decided to call it Garden Gate as the necklace has the keys to the Garden Gate.

The brown ribbon woven into the green chain reminds me of a trellis.  I added the green rose beads with copper accent beads to side of the necklace to evoke the image of flowers growing on a trellis.  I used the same beads to create the earrings using silver flower earstuds.  The finishing touch was the toggle clasp with a flowers on each part.

Inspiration: Trellis by William Morris, 1862, a wallpaper pattern sold by his company.
