About this design:

Another January birthday necklace, this time for my youngest sister, whose birthday is on Friday the 15th. She's asked for a blue necklace in the past (she got her birthstone, Garnets, already), so I picked a Lapis pendant.


Lapis, Owyhee Blue Opal, Glass Beads, Seed Beads, Gold-plated Beads & Clasp

    Thank you Chickies! I’m the lucky one, having 2 wonderful younger sisters and a great little brother, as well as hugely loving and supportive parents.

    Arja – I found the clasp online on ebay. If I remember who the seller was I’ll let you know (I’ll have to check my records). :D

    Very rich looking. Lapis and gold were made for each other and this design shows them both extremely well.
