Art Bead Artistry: Summer Storm Necklace

Whew!  Another hot one outside today.  How about we focus on some cool silver raindrop pendants* with pretty floral designs from ArtBeads.com?  It is one of their many styles of pendants!  I picked these out because I thought they were elegant and I loved the detail and they reminded me of rain.  Here's what I did with them:

I paired the pendants with some gunmetal findings, a teeny bit of Austrian crystal, and one of my cloud components.  I think it looks like a summer storm!  I would love a little rainfall here at this point.  Did I mention it is hot?
I added a sparkly gunmetal and crystal box clasp to tie it all together, also available from ArtBeads.com.  This necklace makes me feel a little cooler just by looking at it!
