Winter Tree!

About this design:

This necklace was inspired by the bare tree against a winter sky. Everything was coated in ice and there were sundogs in the sky that created a rainbow effect around the tree. It was a beautiful and rare sight!


PMC tree pendant by Melissa Lee, etched handmade lampwork beads, clear quartz nuggets, 1 swaroivski crystal bicone, sterling findings.
