Crystal Cave

About this design:

The crystal druzy needed more than just a chain...the mirror came first, then the dragon and the filigree, the chains and the opal quartz puff diamonds needed to look like they belonged there and the czech crystals were almost an afterthought but I think they look like part of the package. What do you think ladies? I plan to try to sell this piece.
It is 18" long with a 3" extender. The earrings have handmade earwires and are just 1" long.


Brass chains, wire and findings, opal puff quartz diamonds, czech crystals, crystal druzy, mirror, bead fix adhesive.
