This is a very beautiful neckpiece which depicts this artists wonderful ability in mastering his craft. It will be a stunning addition to your jewelry pieces. This artist has other jewelry items to select from and the choice will be difficult for you to decide what youd like best, but perhaps buy more than one!

"Long, Large Pendant"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Nature Goddess, Pendant is not my favorite piece of jewelry from this artist because for this necklace to look good, need a top with the right neckline. The craving of the girl with flowing hair and flower and the amethyst surrounded with silver work is pretty. Personally, I usually do not find female forms on jewelry appealing. However, I do not find the girl design on the pendant offensive or unattractive. Happy with purchase.

"Beautiful Sophistication"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ancient Remnant, bone pendant necklace can be worn with the matching earrings, Gate of Olympus, for a big, bold, sophisticated look, but the outfit needs to be appropriate to carry off a well put together look. Looks good with black or a black/white outfit. The pendant is created with finesse and a touch of femininity. Happy with purchase.
