Carnelian Memories


About this design:

This Victorian inspired set was designed around the focal Vintaj wrapped stone. The thin vein of rust at the bottom of the stone just begged to be brought into focus which I did by adding the Carnelian elements. The Vintaj filigree that the earrings are made with were cut from a large Vintaj flower piece. I feel any elegant Victorian woman could proudly wear this set.

Components:

This set includes various Vintaj pieces. Assorted carved Carnelian beads. Light green AB finish faceted round crystals. 4 mm light green bi-cone crystals. Two sizes of small gold glass spacer beads Antique brass floral heishi spacers. Vintaj cable chain. Finished with ascrolled antique brass toggle clasp.

    Thank you for the praise. I’m glad you guys like it! Wherever I’ve bought this kind of stone I’ve never gotten a definitive answer as to what the name is. The closest I’v come is a shop in Alameda, Ca. that called it Aqua Terra.
