Orange Blossom by CrysallisCreations Orange Blossom by CrysallisCreations
Orange Blossom...... :)

I think Carnelian is such a under-appreciated mineral.... yet, with all the color enhanced ones on the market today and seemingly plentiness of them, I can understand why I guess...

These are natural Brazilian Carnelian, or Red Agate as some want to make it a bit more noble.... :) which ever you prefer. All wrapped in either Argentium sterling silver or sterling silver wire. The focal is a Thai Karen silver flower, wired chain of Carnelian rondelles.

Once again, this is an off-balanced necklace. I really enjoy the liveliness of an off-balanced piece can do! I hope you'll enjoy this!! :)

Thats gorgeous! The colours are so beautiful. :)
The two different styles on either side are interesting, and the rounded beads are very pretty. :D
I'm not too sure about the large flower pendant, but simply because it is not my kind of style. So it does looks really amazing, just not in my opinion. If that makes sense? :lmao:
So anyway, overall, it looks stunning. :nod:

I LOVE the lack of symetry in this piece. I have to admit, I've been an underapreciator of carnelion in the past, but no more, this piece has made me a believer in their beauty :heart:

And yeah.... it is honestly quite different with these natural Red Agate - Carnelian, compare to the color enhanced ones that fluorished the market today! The color of these are just mesmorizing I thought.... Especially the big rounds.

I am glad to make you realize how beautiful Carnelian can be!! :D :hug:

Aww yummy! I was drooling over your Carnelian gems the other night! Aren't they just the most yummy colour! :drool:
I love the flower and the off set sizes, it's nice that you've used the same stone for the whole piece. Oo and the dangles are so cute! :D :D
