    Wow! Makes a real statement with all that texture! Very luxe. And it has a very cool North African or Mid-Eastern flavor to it–like something you’d buy at a bazaar in Morocco or Turkey. Love it!

    Ditto! Doesn’t sound like much to say about something so gorgeous; but, it has all been said so pretty and intriguing. Brings to mind (Little Round Chick) Simon and Simone. LOL! Looks steamy with ingrigue

    What sn awesome pendant to build a necklace around. It looks like everything just flowed together, though I’m sure it took a bit more thought than that. I love the different shaped amythest beads and the small garnet (?) ones. Also liked that you made matching earrings and bracelet. I am wondering now where the folks who put there jewelry up here sell it? Etsy? Artfire?
    I feel like I’m going to see this necklace in my dreams ~ Linda

    LOL, Linda I have a girlfriend that displays a lot of my stuff in her salon she says that it attracts clientele for her and every week I manage to sell something so I am happy with that.

    When I purchased the pendant I knew that I was going to have an issue with finding garnet in that particular size and I did not want to use big stone because to me I it would have been to much so used chips.
