Tuscan Bronze

About this design:

The bronzite pendant had been in my “New Projects” box for a while, then I saw several of Jolene’s Fresh Picks with bronzite and the Tuscan Sun coins. Ordered the bronzite ovals and Tuscan coins and had started to finish the necklace with some tiger eye rounds from my stash, but then miraculously the bronzite rounds appeared in the Lunch Specials last month ! Finished length of the necklace is 19” with a 2” drop for the pendant.


From Lima Beads: Bronzite Wavy Oval 30x21mm, Bronzite Flat Oval 18x13-14mm, Bronzite Round 6mm, Czech Glass Tuscan Sun Coin 10mm, Oiled Bronze Crystal Faceted Rondelle 3mm. From Other Sources: Czech Glass Carnelian Rondelle 3x5mm, antique brass bail and trigger clasp from my stash.
