Soaring Phoenix

About this design:

The original version of this piece, "Rising Phoenix", used a rectangular carnelian pendant instead of a point. After the original had been sold, a friend requested it for sale. When I told her it had already been sold, I then said I would find the requisite parts for a customized version.

That is where I feel I perfected the design from the original, hence the name "Soaring Phoenix".


Carnelian, Agate, Lampwork glass

    Just beautiful. (You had me at Carnelian!) I like the addition of the lampworks here.The little flecks of metal work well with the wings.
