Shades of Blue

About this design:

This piece was inspired by the woman wearing it: on our first date, she wore a necklace of the same length and similar bead shapes, but with a gemstone doughnut pendant with a small cluster of tiny stones. I have a similar piece with a doughnut shaped lapis that is the same length.
