Little Black Dress

About this design:

As the name says I wanted to create a companion for that "little black dress", sober yet elegant. Again I worked with Sardonyx but in a different shape that actually reminds me of gum pieces :)


Black Sardonyx (rectangles and rondelles), Tourmalated Quartz, Crystal seed beads, Silver toggle

    Sardonyx really stands out.. all by itself….you and I agree on a simple design when the gemstone is the focus. Very pretty!
