About this design:

A warm mix of stones, silver and mixed beads. I think of it as my everyday go to piece because it has a relaxed cozy feel. I used pineapple opal as my focal point and included a mix of smokey quartz along with a beautiful blue and brown rondelle which is actually glass. I struggled with a bail because of the size of the opening on the pendant and that is when I came up with the idea for using a silver chain looped through a jump ring which I think added to its rustic feel.
