About this design:

This long necklace has the most gorgeous lampwork heart pendant from Lori Lochner. I have mixed it with some green Jade, Ruby Zoisite, Lepidolite and other matching lampwork beads from Lori. The chain is a heavy sterling silver chain and the connectors are Fine silver leaves.


Canadian Jade, Ruby Zoisite, Lepidolite, Lampwork beads, sterling silver chain and Hill Tribe silver leaf connectors, Sterling silver wire.
