Red Jasper and Onyx Neo-Victorian Necklace

About this design:

Here's one more in my unnamed series of necklaces (Filigree Wrapped Donut Series? *shrug*). This time I used a red jasper donut and onyx teardrops. No beaded chain this time, as it probably would've overwhelmed the piece.

    Love the jasper with the onyx it’s very cool and dramatic! All your donuts remind me a modern medallions—perhaps the medallion series? I don’t know…just a thought.

    This is beautiful and colorful. The Onyx beads are a nice shape,and look great with those bead caps. I agree about leaving it the way it is. It makes a lovely statement!

    The colored donut and black drops add a whole new look to the design. Absolutely gorgeous and very dramatic.

    You have titled this style pendant as Neo Victorian so why not just add the word Medallion… The Neo-Victorian Medallion Series….. What ever you call this series it is a beautiful collection of necklaces. :D

    I just wanted to say how much I love your necklaces. You have used such beautiful stones and the metals and embellishments just add more interest and a stronger desire to reach out and grab it off the screen.
