About this design:

Magnesite is one of my favorite stones. I love the way it looks and I think the brass brings out the brown matrix of the stones. I wanted to do an asymetrical piece, but not sure if I like this or not.


Magnesite flat horse eye and ovals, brass spacers, dragonfly pendants, hooks and findings.

    Thank you Betty. The Magnesite is very soothing to me. I kind of use them as worry stones.

    Lovely piece Tara! I like the feel of it when I see the bottom picture how it would lay on the collar bone. Would wear it in a heart beat.

    Thank you ladies! The last time I made something with Magnesite, the pendant had silver around it and so I used both brass and silver. I think it looks great with just brass too!
