Bohemian blooms

Grow a summer garden

This set includes some of my favorite design themes, like Art Nouveau and  Steampunk. Stylized pod shapes, ornate leaves, and swinging dangles give the necklace a vintage yet organic feel. The ribbon colors add to the floral feeling, and asymmetry gives the overall look a casual vibe.
