The Beauty of Septaria

About this design:

I've had this Septaria pendant for quite a long time, but suddenly it jump out of the box and mixed with the other brown toned beads. I'm pleased with the result and I think this pendant is a real beauty!

    Well, it’s for sale….or wait a minute,maybe not…..It’s that typical situation! ;-) Actually, yesterday I sold some pieces at work, and there are someone who ordered a special combination. It seems like people like silver more than gold!

    Such a gorgeous combination!

    I can’t imagine doing this with silver. The gold is a stunning complement with the beads you’ve used. But I have been know to restring to meet the whims of the buyer.
