Dreaming of Nassau

About this design:

My inspiration is the dreamy look of the water,when flying over the Bahamas. Many shades of blues and greens.everything is so crystal clear!


Genuine stones. Mystic Green Quartz,Apatite,and gemmy quality small Kyanite. All brios wrapped in half hard sterling,attached to sterling silver earwires. I used a couple of small jump rings to get more dangle effect.
