Components:

Pendant assembled from a tourmilated quartz moon and a twisted hematite droplet. Suspended from faceted hematite from Lima Beads, faceted amethyst and grey freshwater pearls. Hammered sterling silver clasp.

    This is sooooo pretty!

    I’ve been wondering what to do with my LB faceted hematite … great inspiration to show that it can be mixed with other colors than black! SLS

    Oh gosh, Shannon, I LOVE that faceted hematite. It has such wonderful sparkle and weight.I keep buying more and always find new ways to use it. :)

    It does have a lot of sparkle and weight … I have noticed that you’ve used it a few different ways, so I need to do the same!

    I was actually thinking of mixing it with some other assorted purple stones I’ve bought from LB because I think that black/gray/and purple are great mixed together. Well, that, and those colors are half of my wardrobe! SLS
