The “hang in there” ombre gold necklace is a resilience talisman. You see, the little man who fell out of the nacelle is holding on tight and wants to survive to go through this rough patch of wind life threw at him. It is a cute necklace to offer as a morale booster to a friend who is struggling at the moment. Wearing it, you will discover this poetic balloon necklace is also a conversation starter and the translucent gradient is an added touch!
You can personalize your gold ombre hot air balloon necklace by selecting your favorite pigment color between vibrant fuchsia and royal blue and I will decorate the envelope of the balloon with fading enamel from saturated to translucent. It is a unique see-through design similar to my multiglitter version.
A silver version of the ombre hot air balloon is also available here.
