About this design:

This piece came together quicky. I love the combination of the Peruvian blue opal and the whiskey quartz. And I think the gold really sets it off.


Peruvian Blue Opal, whiskey quartz, carved bone, etched jade, 22k gold plated componets

    Beautiful! Has sort of an Atlantian feel to it. Like this was an ancient treasure from the lost city of Atlantis on the bottom of the sea! :-)

    OMG Mary! The original name of this bracelet was Atlantis! When I made the first one, the name Atlantis popped right into my head, and that doesn’t happen too often for me! I’ve made a couple others, but with this one I added the gold Pegasus, so renamed it Pegasus!

    Thank you again ladies for all your kind words!
