A Rolling Stone

We like the unique style of Meyda's Moss Creek Stepping Stone Pendants. The fixtures sport beige iridescent glass tiles that are hand-set in miniature windows on raised side panels. Behind the art glass insets in this Arts & Crafts-styled pendant is a layer of Amber Mica to provide a unique decorative ambiance.
