Cool Blue Fire

About this design:

I have had this large blue fire feldspar pendant for quite awhile, not sure what to pair it with. Along the way I came across blue pietersite and gray feldspar. Added some leftover obsidian pieces near the back. It all just seemed to click. The pendant has gorgeous flashes of blue..see the closeup photo.


Blue fire feldspar pendant from Lima Beads, TierraCast spiral pinch bail from Lima Beads, Blue Pietersite rounds, large faceted gray feldspar rondelles, TierraCast spiral toggle from Lima Beads, Moonlight twisted tornado crimps and other silverplated findings.
