About this design:

Since I sold the last necklace I made with this gemstone, I had a hard time finding more. But I finally did, in a big detailing shape, and I put it together in the simple gem enhancing design style that I like :) I will keep it for a while...

Components:

Thunder Egg Agate, copper roses and toggle clasp.

    This is beautiful. What a stone. I like the fact that you kept it simple – when you have a stone with so much pattern and color like this, I think less is more like the saying goes. This is in my favorites. :)
