"Blood From a Stone"


About this design:

Red Spinel! What can I say? I just love these little stones.
I've had them for a while now,and just purchased some big juicy Quartz Crystals.Decided they were meant for each other. I think the Spinels look so pretty, as they move around the Quartz pendant. I did simple loops and stacked them on jump rings,so they would have movement.

Components:

Tiny Red Spinel,Clear Quartz Crystal,SS ball headpins (28G), SP headpin 20G,SP Daisy spacers,SS chain and bail.

    Spinel in any color is gorgeous! Love’em all! Love your pendant, too. The red with the crystal has a wonderful glow. Love, love, love it! :D

    Thank you L.R.C. I’ve just seen a listing for some raw multi colored Spinel. They look delish! I wonder how many people have been “fooled” into buying it for Ruby. I read that it happened in one of the crown Jewels..ha ha! I’m not sure if my Quartz is natural or Lab. It’s far too clear for natural I think. No matter..I love the facets.

    So pretty!! I need this to go with the 1ct 6mm round red spinel gemstone I purchased a month ago (yea, I’m bragging)! If I may ask, where did you get the spinel rondelles? Beautiful pendant!
