    Lovely necklace! I was at a craft fair Saturday and saw a necklace made of long oval sardonyx stones. What was fascinating about it was that there were clear parts to the stones with druzy showing through! I drooled over that one because I am a druzy lover!!!

    Wowza, that is a stunner! I would take the necklace over coffee anytime!

    WireWrangler says:

    Beautifully designed. The boldness of the stones is accentuated by your use of the bold rounds contrasted with the small rounds. One simple, but stunning focal drop completes the design without detracting from the beauty of the stones. Well done!

    I didn’t read the “ingredient” description before my last comment. I thought the brown lace agates were sardonyx stones they look so much alike!!! Whatever they are they look beautiful in this piece!!
