Ruby Zoisite Clusters

About this design:

More sticks only these are Ruby and Zoisite which happens to be one of my all time favorite stones. I put the R&Z sticks in clusters separated by large cream colored pearls. The shapes of these sticks are not as uniform as others I've used so they don't always lay flat. I just realizes as I was taking the photos that there is no clasp on this necklace. I suppose I should put one on for the sake of convenience.

    Oh my, this is stunning. I’ve only seen this stone online- never in a bead store. It’s so beautiful and the large pearls are a perfect marrying of the two. The antique silver chain is perfect ! Love it!

    This came out so pretty. I think the pearl accents are beautiful.
    I’ve been working with ruby zoisite all day! I have an offset donut & am making bead links & antique copper for the metal. I like the silver better!

    So pretty with the pearls; they add but don’t take away from the R&Z!

    Ruby Zoisite is such an interesting & beautiful stone. I’ve always loved the pops of ruby amongst the deep greens. I like how you made links from the sticks, and the pearls add a soft, delicate touch in contrast to the natural feel of the sticks.

    So pretty. I like the organic look to the stacks. Ruby Zoisite is new to me. It’s beautiful paired with pearls.

    Thanks for the comments and compliments everyone. Ruby Zoisite is an interesting combination that varies from rich dark green to a light green almost as light as peridot. The darker green takes a really high polish.
