Darkly Lilac

While creating this, I had romantic images of a beautiful, innocent and ultimately spurned Victorian heroine, waiting in vain for her the lilac arbour at dusk (but of course!)

The design has been created by wirewrapping a spine of AAA sparkly white topaz gemstones together. This simple base was elaborated on with clusters of gems nestled between the white topaz rondelles. Featured are violet/blue iolite, vibrant amethyst, icy rock crystal quartz, mysterious black rutilated quartz, and iris peacock freshwater pearls. Finished with an ornate Balinese silver toggle clasp, the entire design was oxidised in an organic fashion, and then lightly rubbed back. Glorious!
