    I hear ya. I have a love/hate with Unakite. I’m drawn to it – for some reason – but then what?
    You did it well!

    I’ve done well with unakite and copper.
    I like the your addition of the copper pearls.

    I really like this pick! I also happen to like unakite, but I think that’s because I play up the pink/coral tones, instead of bringing attention to the orange.

    classy chick,

    thanks for this “challenge” Pick about unakite, agree with you – somehow I’m not so fond of this one too, its orange and green are too “contrast-y”, not like autumn jasper :) … you did well combining it with other beads, the greens, oranges and copper goes well together!

    Classy Chick, Thanks for taking on the challenge of unakite! I have had some sitting around and now I am inspired to use it! Karen DeH, I also loved what you did with the unakite! I really like the idea of bringing out the coral/pink tones!!
