Sparkling Iolite


About this design:

Iolite is one of the stones that I like most. When I found the large faceted iolite focal bead in a local bead shop in town, it demanded to be put in a necklace :-) I was able to find different shapes of iolite beads and I loved to combine them together.

Components:

rhodium hammertone ring, Iolite, Natural Silver Quartz, silver clasp
