“Behind the Scenes in the Bat Cave” will take you into my studio-office to see some of my works in progress. I actually cheated a bit today. I’ve moved this post from my old blog. It was originally published last year. (I promise that my next post will be new.)

Minimalist designs are usually small with clean lines. An example is this lime green peridot necklace.

It’s not complicated to make but if you don’t have much experience with the wrapping it will take a bit of practice to get the wraps just right.


Here it is from start to finish.

A minimalist style with a pop of a summery lime green, this necklace will look great with a summer tee or sundress.

Peridot soothes the emotions, activates the Heart Chakra, and projects joyful energy. It is the birthstone for August and Leo.

Do you think this would make a nice Mother’s Day gift? What changes would you make?
