From my research, I've been able to determine that this is "The Leaper", was retired from production in 2009, and is the symbol for "inner joy and freedom of spirit". Each LizTech piece is handmade and thus, the pieces vary from one another, creating unique, fantastic jewelry. Vintage findings and beads are a hallmark of LizTech Jewelry.
From their web site: The pieces are all adorned using vintage stones, metal findings, parts, bits and anodized aluminum.
Note: this piece has a mirror effect, and is thus hard to photograph - it is much brighter in person
