About this design:

When I designed the necklace Metamorphosis, I was in doubt between the golden sheen obsidian and the snowflake obsidian and because I liked how the snowflake obsidian looked I decided to do another design with it. I didn’t have a nice pendant so I created some dangles from Swarovski Crystals and added them between the obsidian stones using jump rings, this replaced the pendant and the design was created!


Snowflake Obsidian, Black Obsidian, variety of Jet Swarovski Crystals, B. Diamond Swarovski Crystals, metal Jump rings and findings!
