Peacock Druzy Pendant by SoulStoneDesigns Peacock Druzy Pendant by SoulStoneDesigns
A customer of mine fell in love with the Oil Slick Necklace, but decided that she wasn't tall enough to wear it, and requested a single-stone pendant. After much hunting, I finally found another titanium-treated druzy, and here it is! This one's really dazzling; the colors shift depending on the angle you view it.

...Does anyone know the official spelling - is it "druzy" or "drusy" because I see it both ways all the time and it's driving me nuts.

I love drusy stones. I honestly don't know which is right; I've seen it spelled both ways. The titanium coating can take a boring stone and turn it into an amazing piece of art. This is definitely a lovely example.

What a gorgeous color :) . I got a druzy pendant and its a similar color to garnet but in the right light it has a orange copper color to it. I'm always looking for interesting colors in druzy

That's definitly what I'd call eye-catching. I like it better than the one with multiple stones on it personally, because you can focus more on the beauty of the individual stone rather than skimming over a whole bunch. They're truely interesting.

I may have seen them before somewhere and just not recognised what it was. Or perhaps "could be" with a good specimen.

Awesome. ;)

I found this particular one on eBay, but I've gotten them from gem shows before.

It's very pretty.
How do you afford this kind of stuff?? It looks really expensive.

SoulStoneDesigns Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2007
It's a little more expensive than your average druzy might run, but it won't break the bank. This piece, in particular, was a commission, so I wasn't the one paying for it anyway.

oh, okay.
I was looking at that red one in your scraps, how much would it be? (Note me if you don't want to say it here.)
You've got some really awesome stuff.
One day I might copy a couple of designs for my art (with reference to you of course :))

Please do not copy my designs - they are all copyrighted and they are our livelihood. It would be much more interesting to see your own designs! There are magazines like "Jewelry Artist" that have some really great tutorials on how to make all kinds of styles that might help you out :)

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "that red one." Most of the pictures in our scraps are from my personal collection, or are old works or works-in-progress.

Well I think it said it was for sale.
And I was intending to have reference to you in the comment if I ever did use a jewellery design. It would be drawing, not actually making...

The other peacock druzy necklace is for sale, maybe that's what you were thinking of?

And even still, please do not copy our designs. Every piece you see originated from drawings too.

It's a quartz druzy with a titanium coating on it. I don't normally go in for treated stones, but I'm a sucker for peacock colors :D

not tall enough? is the oil slick necklace really long? O.oq" /me has never heard someone say that about jewelry before.....

also, i love all the colors in this. i understand why she fell in love with the stone.

i always spelled it druzy. 'cause i like to be fenetik. ;p-b
