Malachite Dream

About this design:

I started with this 35mm malachite cabochon, which I glued into a stainless setting. It was such a beautiful stone, I wanted to complement it, so I added a helm chain, half byzantine drops, and czech teardrops in two colors.


malachite cabochon, stainless steel setting, aluminum jump rings, czech teardrop beads, plated silver clasp

    Oh my, this is absolutely stunning! The two different colors of the teardrops work so well with the swirls & patterning in the Malachite focal. I love how the helm weave mimics the round setting for the pendant. Fantastic piece! :)

    Wow! That pendant is out of this world! It has been years since I saw a malachite pendant that was this spectacular! The design of this necklace puts it in a class of its own. It is just fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Agree that this is a show stopper! Your chain maille with the two toned turquoise drops is a perfect compliment to the focal. Love it!
