Gemstone necklace with sterling silver - part 2

I tried several approaches, with bronze and copper, but wasn't thrilled.

The colour of the howlith (dyed) reminded me of the sea, so I opted for a
design like my mermaid necklace and bracelets.

I used some 15 ga wire and formed some spirals elements and some
similiar to my chakra pendants. Small silver beads in form of sea stars,
tortoises (or is it turtles? I can never remember), shells etc will be wired
upon those elements.

I ran out of 18 ga silver wire for the beads and quickly ordered some.
Let's hope it will arrive soon.

Happy Easter to you all.
