Midnight Flight


About this design:

This piece started with the deep midnight blue dumortierite teardrop and teh butterflies seem about to take flight.. the butterflies are from a 1980's earring that I remember buying from Avon.. the dumortierite didnt match with any of the dumortierite that I had so I paired it with some beautiful Larvikite and MOP instead
