BLOOD OF THE DRAGON


About this design:

I've been saving these garnets for a few years and figured they pair good with the dragon blood..used the moss agate to pull the green in the pedant out.

Components:

dragon blood pendant, facited garnet, Moss Agate, sliver plated cut design beads, lobster clasp

    Thank you sweet ladies, I’m real pleased with it.. Funny story..took 2 days of playing with the layout. when I finally worked it up, I slid it under my dresser,Next morning when I got up there were some of my beads out from under the dresser. One of our cats got his leg and paw under and pulled some beads out and of course messed up the enite layout..lol

    Grama rose..looking forward to seeing your creation !!!
