Glorious Garnet Cascade

About this design:

This started with the little garnet slab. Usually like silver, but certain things just must be done up in gold! Deep dark red garnets are one of those.


Garnets of all sorts and sizes, goldfilled beads, wire and findings, accented with a few little gold keishi pearls
