Snowflake Obsidian

About this design:

I've always thought snowflake obsidian was pretty, but when my husband bought these beads for me, I thought "I'm never going to be able to make anything out of these!". But this necklace has turned out to be one of my favorites. Once again, that rock tumbler he had as a kid is paying off for me!


Snowflake Obsidian, white carved jade, shell beads, black glass seed beads and silver plate beads
