I've been told this gorgeous bead is white onyx. Now it's not that much white in it, but instead some really beautiful reddish-orange-white coloring, reminds me of the scales of an interesting sea creature. Anyway I like it. I got inspired by a recent herringbone pendant that Eni Oken showed on her new website, and I've decided to make a herringbone pendant as well. Then I oxidized it for added depth. Funny how the silver oxidization brings out the beautiful colors in the stone.
The pendant is 7x1.5 cm, it's a really nice big one, which allows you to show it off on your neck. And of course, it comes on a sterling silver chain. When purchasing, I need to know in advance if you want the chain also oxidized to match the pendant, else it will come not oxidized.
