Out of Africa


About this design:

I had the African Rainbow Agate tumbled nuggets for awhile. Finally got them out and played. Rhyolite worked well and African Opal seemed to want to play too. Hmmm? A theme? I put them together but they needed something else. Madagascar Petrified Wood! Made the bail large enough to remove from the necklace if desired.

Components:

Madagascar Petrified Wood pendant, African Opal, African Rainbow Agate, Rhyolite, 20g artistic wire, SP beads and findings

    Your “playing” turned out beautifully. All the stones go together as if there were made for each other. Awesome pendant too.
