Lava Stone Dragonfly Necklace

About this design:

I'd seen some lava stone jewelry floating around and instantly fell in love with it. I found some lava stone donuts and wrapped one with a piece of antique brass filigree and a brass dragonfly. I added some pearls and smoky quartz for accent beads. This is the first of this kind of necklace I made, the second being the rose quartz dragonfly necklace I uploaded earlier.

    Just as beautiful as the rose quartz with the dragonfly! I love the softness of the pearls with the lava beads. It’s an interesting and beautiful contrast. Those smokey quartz beads are awesome.

    Thanks, olive. I’m always looking for an excuse to use smoky quartz. I love that stuff. :)
