Something Black & White - A custom order

About this design:

I started planning this necklace before I got this custom order for a black & white necklace. At a show a lady asked me about something black & white for a nice dress and I said I think I have a necklace for you, you just have to wait a little bit.


White Jade, Tourmilated Quartz, Rock Crystal, White Keishi pearls, Silver Keishi pearls, Mystic Spinel, ox.silver spacers, large Mother of Pearl clasp w/Marcasite

    Ditto to everything above; I wish I knew how to convey this piece’s beauty, but I don’t know how to say it differently than what’s already been said. Your client is one lucky woman to own this piece. It’s a stunning work of art! It sure caught my eye as I was perusing for eggs!
