The dainty rhodochrosite drops are of such high quality that at first I took them for pink sapphires.
Luckily the gent from whom I buy is an honest soul, so I avoided a costly error.
I've made them the stars of a netted collar made of faceted clear lustred seed beads, and some cute girly dangly earrings.
The collar is about 17-1/2 inches long, and 3 inches at its widest.
It closes with a silver plate safety clasp.
The earrings dangle about 1-5/8 inches from their sterling silver post findings.
The set is another ultra-feminine creation from SPARKLE PLENTY.
