    LOVE this color combination.
    The stones I like. But like you, I have no idea what to do with very large stones, donuts and the carved ones. Just not my style.

    Thanks! Yeah, I just started using donuts because they’re so popular, but I’d have no idea of what to do with the larger beads or carved ones!

    i have found that the larger beads tend to sell better when placed on the side of the necklace rather than having them act as the pendant.

    I use them in my assymetrical designs a lot. Don’t care for dark colours much but this is nice.

    the colors combine nicely… I too shy away from the big beads… I appreciate the look but probably wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing them.

    Thanks! Yeah, I stick with smaller beads, but other people like bigger ones so…

    If you string 1 or 3 larger beads in line with smaller ones, they make great focals.

    Luv2bead, you are good! My challenge bead would be pearls, and I love the way you put the gold rice with the jaspers!
