Dragon's Blood & Crystal

About this design:

While out shopping with a friend a couple of weeks ago, I saw a necklace in a jewlry store made of Bloodstone coins and 2 colors of green crystals.... I was inspired to make this one. it has a different stone, a combo of crystal bicones and round opaque fire-polished beads, and more silver than the one in the store. I like how it came out... and best of all, my friend said she thinks it looks better than the one in the store!

I made a bracelet to match, and a choice of earrings... but it's going to be hard to part with this one!


Dragon's Blood Jasper, Khaki Swarovski xtals, deep red fire-polished beads, sterling silver.
