Fluorite Ginko


About this design:

Made for my "Mom away from home" for Christmas. She loves purple, and really liked a necklace I did back before I was in college (years and years ago), but I couldn't find a pendant remotely similar to it even after a week of searching. So I found this lovely fluorite ginko leaf instead, and matched it with some fluorite rondelles. More info on my blog, simplyadornedjewelry.blogspot.com

Components:

Fluorite, pendant

    LOVE the ginkgo leaf! So unique.. and the fluorite you accented with just adds to it! I really love this! May I ask where you got the ginkgo leaf? Did they have different gemstone ginkgo leafs? :D

    @ SweetBirchDesigns-Jess: I bought a trio set of fluorite ginko leaf pendants from a favored seller on e-bay. I still have the really big one and one that looks very much like the one I used for this piece left. I have four places / people I buy from on a regular basis: Justinstones (ebay, where I got the ginko), Lima Beads, Fusionbeads.com, and Von’s in West Lafayette, Indiana, just off Purdue University campus.
