Ceramic Heart Necklace

About this design:

I wanted to try to make a necklace using ceramic beads. I fell in love with the Gaea beads from LB. I used links from a brass chain to connect the beads and an eyepin to suspend the heart because I didn't have any jump rings or bail that would fit.


Gaea ceramic heart and beads, brass components, mookaite and amazonite beads.

    Beautiful! :)
    I have this pendant but didn’t know what to do with it. I’ve been trying to use it with amethyst, but wasn’t happy.
    YOU have come up with the perfect solution. I like the playfulness of the dots and swirls in the Gaea beads.

    I like the contrast between the gaea beads and chain. To use chain btw the beads also makes every bead to be somewhat in focus :) Lovely design!
