Fossilized coral -- with tiger-eye and carnelian!

fossilized coral with carnelian tiger eye onyx and silver wire wrap by
The distributor had this labeled as "flower stone." How odd. It's really fossilized coral, and it's gorgeous, isn't it? The cabochon was free-form wire-wrapped in silver, and wired onto a beaded necklace, strung with carnelian, tiger eye and silver spacers. I'm very excited about this piece! I have another piece of coral, already wire-wrapped, ready to go, and will finish it in a few days. The earrings have the same square coral pillow beads, tiger eye, and carnelian. Eye-popping, and elegant.

That is absolutely beautiful. I love the carnelian, with the earth tones of the fossilized coral. What a lovely piece.
