Tulipa 'Burgundy Lace'

'Burgundy Lace' tulips are a rich wine color with magenta highlights.  Fabulous colors.  But my favorite part of this tulip is its delicately fringed petals.  They inspired this piece and I used crystal-encrusted druzy nuggets to add texture to this necklace.

A heavily-plated sterling silver (over brass) tulip bead cap is handwired with magenta jade, cabernet freshwater pearls, recycled deep red glass, garnet rounds, Swarovski crystals and hefty faceted nuggets of burgundy druzy agate to form this one-of-a-kind necklace. It closes in the rear with a sterling silver heart-motif toggle.
