Asia Inspired

About this design:

I haven't posted on here in awhile, so I thought I would share with you a set I made with a pendant and bead set I purchased from Asia. I hope I did them justice!


Pendant and coil wrapped beads from Winter Bird Studio. Gray and blue ceramic round beads, Czech glass coffee baroque bicone and Czech glass flowers from Lima. Rubber O rings from my elements. Antique brass jump rings, clasp and ear wires my stash.
