About this design:

I have wanted an ammonite fossil for so long! I first strung it with all gemstones, but it was too "dark and heavy looking", so I spread out the gemstones and used hammered ovals to lighten it up!

Components:

ammonite fossil,petrified green opal,Hungarian opal,bronzite,antique silver,sterling silver
