Smoke Thief


About this design:

This necklace was inspired by a description in "The Smoke Thief" by Shana Abe. I tried to recreate smoke rising into the sky using different shades of blue and grey seedbeads. I've added a close up of the earrings that show the seed bead patterning more clearly (I hope).

Components:

Blue chalcedony druzy nuggets (from LB), blue lace agate rondelles, sterling beads and clasp, seed beads
