About this design:

I've had this Swarovski heart for a long time. Happened to pull out my ruby impression jasper, and it just came together!

    Looks like I’m chasing you tonight! This is gorgeous! I’ve wanted to try a design with a large ring in front – I just can’t seem to make one work for me. Excellent work!

    Lori, looks like I missed you again! Glad you like the piece – my biggest problem was wrapping the heart, go figure…

    Thanks, Violet! I wasn’t sure I liked the swirl off center, but I think it works….

    Love this!!!! Too many people think that crystals are for mother’s bracelets and wedding jewelry – but they make lovely everyday jewelry when paired with gemstones and metals. Love the swirl – being a bit “off kilter” really makes it work!!!! :)

    Very pretty. Im a big cyrstal fan and I am a believer that you can make them work for you in your everyday life. You did a great job of making it work, I love the silver swirl with the color red.
