BoHo the Free Soul

This item is currently available at my Etsy store.

The shade on this Tiger Eye caught my eye-sight right away when I first see it, and I couldn't resist to bring it home! And since I wanted to create something in tear-drop shape so badly, hence this creation! :)


I have created this pendant from scratch. Beautiful tiny freshwater pearls and lots of different sized metal-beads are coiled into the layered net, with a beautiful polished Tiger Eye measured 20mm tall X 15mm wide X 8mm deep at it's center. An additional cubic zirconia to add extra shine to this piece. It reminds me of Bohemianism, though. :)

Pendant measure 2" X 1.5" from the top of the frame, weighing 12.0 gram.


Something About Tiger Eye:
Tiger's eye (also Tigers eye, Tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually yellow- to red-brown, with a silky luster. It is a fibrous silicified crocidolite (blue asbestos), a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement. An incompletely silicified blue variant is called Hawk's eye. A member of the quartz group, its physical and optical properties are identical or very near to those of single-crystal quartz.
