Aquamarine -- by Carlos Santana

About this design:

My 1st multistrand. The pendant was my B.D. gift from my BFF. I loved the unusual "full moon" in the center of the druzy of the abstract shaped pendant.
The whole piece is glitzy...after 5 wear only. This was early 2009.


Raw aquamarine hand-cut pendant. Round and Biwa "Mint" pearls. Sterling diamond-link chain. Mint and A.B. Swarovski crystals. Lotus jasper 2 mm beads. Sterling fluted bell caps and bar-slide clasp.
