About this design:

I was inspired just by the empty copper pendant (LB); I found the picture for it (covered with magic glaze) and from it the colours for beads, greyish white crackled agate and vintage light blue dotted beads.
My friend wanted it for a co-worker...

Components:

Copper parts, Agate, resin beads, tiny glass beads
