The third Barrette looks like a LOTUS. It is made with a captured opal cabochon and two large amethyst marquise cabochons. The opal is surrounded by genuine amethyst beads, and finished with a little flower made with seed beads. The two amethyst cabochons are surrounded by mother of pearl beads. In between these three beautiful cabochons - a shiny genuine off white pearl. The barrette is framed with dark lavender seed beads.
