A Bit Victorian


About this design:

Seeing this gemstone online and actually having it in from of you is two different things. When I finally saw these stones I was blown away by its beauty. And I knew anything over the top would have overshadow the beauty and pattern of this gemstone.

Components:

Crazy Lace Agate, orange vein firestone and gold beads.

    Crazy Lace Agate is such a beautiful stone :) I’ve never seen orange vein firestone, though. These look beautiful together.

    Wow! I bet this is fantastic in person! You were right to keep the design simple to let the stones shine.

    Hint: when doing this type of design, it helps to have an odd number of stones so that one is in the center of the piece.

    Love your necklace! Great design and great color! I’m crazy about crazy lace agate! It is such a versatile stone. You can use it plain or in wild colors that make the patterns pop! :D
