Being a musician is what caught my eye. Ms. Andrea Brachfeld is an accomplished artist but I was intrigued with her flute. This wrap necklace is what I imagined if you could see notes swirling and flowing like a soft breeze. The blue and white glass beads also reminded me of gentle winds. The length is 19” but because it just wraps around the neck and is designed to be left open, the piece will accommodate easily
Minimum Bid: $50
