Magnolias are important to me because they remind me of home, New Orleans. I grew up climbing magnolia trees. I absolutely love the soft petals and the distinct scent. I created this piece for International Women's Day because while the magnolia flower appears delicate, it is actually very hardy. The unique oval shape of this necklace makes it great for layering with other necklaces. The oval is sterling silver blank and hand-stamped and polished to perfection. A freshwater pearl completes the piece.
