Garnet Star

About this design:

I was lucky enough to find this garnet starburst pendant/pin, and I wanted to make a necklace. I don't know the age, but the stones are rose cut, so not new.

Components:

Garnet pendant, 4mm garnet beads, gold filled bail, spacers, and clasp

    This is so pretty. I love garnets. The gold bail and spacers make a pretty contrast to the dark red.

    Very lovely. I like garnet a lot and the three strand necklace is a good balance for the pendant. What a lucky find indeed!

    Lovely necklace jghall333. I agree that using 3 strands of the 4 mm beads makes for a substantial piece. Love the pendant.

    Beautiful! The three strands are perfect for this piece. Each tiny bead in those strands add extra sparkle that matches all the inset beads on the focal. Lovely necklace!
