Mojave Desert Sunset


About this design:

This piece reminds me of the beautiful warm shades of a desert sunset, the coppery stone cliffs and the greens of the cactus that dot the landscape. I love that the set is both eye-catching and elegant.

Components:

Impression Jasper side drilled nuggets, Red Bend Jasper Flat teardrop pendant and 3-sided twists, silver plated ovals, screw in closure, lever back ear wires,

    striking combo!…like your imagery & the south-west appeal…the hammered silver ovals really enhance the rugged smoothness of the Red Bend jasper
