Happy Birthday to Me!!

About this design:

This is my birthday necklace I made for myself from supplies that my mom brought back from Hawaii. I'll be wearing it all day today and I can't wait to see what the reactions's not really a "fade into the background" type of necklace. I was going to go the easy route and just put black with it, but this hematite was screaming to be put in the design....and boy does it make it pop in person.


Ceramic?? pendant from Hawaii, Hematite, black seed beads and unknown funky beads.
