Marakesh Express

About this design:

This peace is totally inspired by Joyce M's piece " Teardrop 2 "
searched everywhere for a strand of these kyanite pendants but all I was able to get was one :(
turned out to have an exotic feel to it hence "Marakesh Express"


Kyanite, Carnelian, Citrine, silver tube beads
