Charming Dream Necklace
Designer: Katie Hacker
Published: July 2, 2009

Herringbone tubes meet trendy charm accents in this quick, fashionable design that has hidden meanings: To reinforce the dream theme, Katie chose purple tones for creativity, a hummingbird charm for moving forward, and an eye charm for insight.
