Felicity is made of four strands of magnetic hematite beads, hematite chips, snowflake obsidian chips, moonstone chips, wire wrapped clear quartz beads, and two types of metal beads. All of these are strung and wrapped together to create Felicity. I wanted a piece that was chic, and embodied the icy, winter atmosphere.
