    Dazzling! All elements go so well together.

    Where did you place your knots? They are very small...are they on either side of the sunstone?

    Gorgeous necklace, Linda. Love that beautiful fabric, and the Oregon sunstone kicks everything up a notch. And, those Goldens, what a steal!

    Thank you, everybody! I've had the dress for quite a while, but it is nice to have the perfect necklace for it. I got the sunstones from Pattye, by the way. I knotted between each pearl/sunstone. The knots partly disappeared into the holes of the sunstones. The goldens are very lovely, and, yes, quite a lucky find. Even before I got them strung I kept getting them out and playing with them. Thank you!

    Linda! How special you feel like a princess in your gorgeous pearls and designer dress; I'm looking forward to seeing this outfit in person one day! I'm so glad the sunstone worked out! Wishing you lots of compliments, too!
