This piece from my Cluster collection is inspired by natural cluster forms - grapes, buds and blossoms.
A beautifully tapered cluster of rubies forms a shape that reminds me of Wisteria blossom. The stones are faceted rondelles and range in colour from oxblood to cherry red. They make a dark and mysterious statement combined with oxidised silver.
1cm wide x 3cm long, beads range in size from 3 – 4mm
