Mod flower necklace

Resin, pearls capture 1960s chic
Mod flower necklace

Inspired by the flower motif from “The Dating Game,” Julie Jernigan of Arlington, Va., hand-fabricated one mod flower and cast the rest in sterling silver. She filled the flowers with black and pewter epoxy resin and linked them with bunches of freshwater pearls for a look that’s ’60s chic but still very now. – Cathy Jakicic
