Lapis Heishi

About this design:

I've wanted to do a piece like this ever since I noticed the spacers at a local store. I spent months convincing myself to get them to play with, then another month before I got more lapis lazuli heishi to use with it. When my heishi arrived, they were bigger than the others I had, so since there were more of them, they became the focal, and the little ones filler on the ends since I ran out. It was a *bear* to figure out finishing!


Lapis, silver
