About this design:

The pendant was a gift from a dear friend!
I love this piece because it was fun to design and it is out of the box for me.
I'm really enjoying my freedom outside of that box!
This piece will be on display at my next open house.

Components:

Rhodonite pendant, matte black onyx (I think), pistachio freshwater pearls, rhodonite coins, silver plated spacers and toggle.
