Bronzed Heron


About this design:

The focal is bronzed and verdigras patina brass which I found at a show. My goal was to make an understated piece so the focal could stand out. The stones,black tourmaline and bronzite are to protect against negative thinkers.

Components:

Torquoise, bronzite and tourmaline along with turquoise picasso czech trilobites and turquoise seed beads surround the heron focal. The copper clasp from lb.

    I love that focal and used the same to make a pair of earrings with blue apatite…they sold immediately. Looks very Egyptian.
