Description: Stairway to Heaven… we all know this great song by Led Zeppelin, and I think we all love it and that song is the name of the necklace. In this work, I combined beads, leather, a magnificent semi-precious cabochon, crystals, pearls… and a light and elegant necklace was born. This necklace captivates with its smooth curves, unusual shape, and very voluminous bezeling around the cabochon. Well, the best part is that this necklace will be available in many colors – pink, purple, silver, gold, black, green, red… and you will be able to choose your one and only cabochon for this necklace. 9 different kit colors will be available!
