Monaco Agate Butterfly

About this design:

When I saw the filigree butterfly on LB, I just had to get it. My mom loves butterflies and I knew right away I needed to make something for her. I picked the monaco agate because it goes so well with the brass. This ended up being a Christmas present for my mom.

    This is drop dead gorgeous. The stones in the earrings have such depth. The butterfly is perfect in this pick. I bet your mother was thrilled when she opened her present.
