Amazonite Black Tourmaline Drop Necklace

About this design:

I love the natural color range of the amazonite black tourmaline. I added bronze beads and clasp to softly complement, I didn't want anything to compete with the natural beauty of the stones.

    I totally agree! I love the softness of the Amazonite Blk. Tourmaline. The flat spacers were a great choice and don’t detract from the the Amazonite.

    I didn’t realize what the AZBT looked like in larger pieces – Yowza! Mom Nature nails it again!!! Imho, you’ve nailed it too. It’s simple, classic, elegant. That’s all I can say except I love it!

    Gorgeous. I love those stones too. It’s the earthy tones and the flashes of blue. I agree with Fresh Baked. It looks like such a tactile necklace that you just want to run your fingers over the shiny and smooth stones. This is a stunning piece.
