Bronze Age

About this design:

This is a design I conceived on my table. I usually conceive a design in my head first and even before I order my stuff, so virtually. But this one was a work in progress, I did not know what I would do with it. I just ordered bronzite because I liked it. I wasn't sure about the match with the cranberry pearls but they just kept coming together :) I did not have a suitable pendant and wanted to add something to the filigree because it looked strange by itself. Finally, this is what it became, sort of has a medieval look to it.

    I was thinking it looks like it belongs on Guenevere’s neck. Very pretty. It definitely needed the addition to the bottom of the pendant.
