    And a collection any artist should be proud to wear ! Especially like the touch of bronze seed beads to bring out the color in the charoite – - and then contrast with the gunmetal and grays. Brilliant use od color !

    That ribbon’s really cool, too. It has sections of pale yellow and rust–just like the stones!

    Julie, bite the bullet. They are so worth it! Laud, this is fantastic!!! I got my charoite rounds yesterday and they are fraternal twins with the dogtooth! Love the way you brought out the other subtle colors, too!!

    Becky, I bought some charoite but not the amethyst. Now I’m wishing for amethyst, too!

    How much and what shape and size? I might be able to spare a few if I have what you need… :)

    Thanks, Becky, but I haven’t gotten the charoite yet or thought of any design. I do have some plain amethyst rounds. Let me see how the beads look when I put them together.

    Beautiful pick Laud…worthy of the title Artist. I cant wait to see.what you make. Judging from all the seed beads there will probably be one of those intricate weaves you do that must take the patience of Job.

    Becky thanks for the close-up photo. What a cutie!!! Lovin’ the snowbunny hat.
