About this design:

I dug into my stash for this one..and combined two old designs into this one. It is a serpentine carved donut with a Hill Tribe butterfly about to land on a chalcedony flower with a Swarovski crystal center. The necklace is the same materials to keep the flowers moving up the necklace. Another piece for my spring shows.


Serpentine, Chalcedony, Swarovski crystals,sterling silver

    Thank you for all you nice comments chickies. I had to use wire for this one so it was out of my comfort it was twisted sterling so I didn’t want it to look like a glob…
