    CQCC it’s funny that you just mentioned the quartz just as I posted this. Your input is inmprtant to me! Thanks.

    So you have a strand of heart-shaped tourmilated beads? Well, for me the obvious choice would be to pair them with black but that might be kinda boring…I think you could use almost any color though, since they are so neutral – everything goes with black and clear! Pearls would be nice! Let us know how it turns out! :)

    Maybe black, silver and a really crimson red?

  4. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I will. I tried black with gold vermeil and it is nice, but hoohum. Wanted something with more pizazz! Thought the berry would give it some punch. Thought maybe ruby swarovski with the pearls.

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Ooooo…now THAT sounds way cool!!

  6. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Yeah like Ravin said I was also gonna suggest a lot of silver spacers and maybe a bright red.

    Wemai (Coffee Chick) did a bracelet not too long ago with the tourmilated quartz and I think some ruby-colored beads. It was gorgeous.

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I hear you Ravin. I did make a necklace using red coral, onyx and tourmilinated quartz and I love it, however it is a bit more casual. You and I think alike. I thought maybe garnet, but am afraid it maybe too dark.

  9. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I think I am on the right track the berry and pearls.

  10. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Hmmm…what about a red shade of carnelian, or maybe red jasper?

  11. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Yah, I think you’re on the right track too.

  12. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I did think about that too Ravin. I was going to try as a second choice angelskin coral, padaradscha crystals, onyx and gold for spark. May I should try that out.

  13. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    OOOooo, yah, that souds cool also!! Wow, choices and more choices, lol. ;)

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I know now I am going to have to make two necklaces. I’ll keep you posted on the second option later. Hunkman just brought home a new digital TV 48″ I think. got my hands full for now. Thanks for the help.

    Wow all suggestions are great!! Have fun with the TV. We are messing with plumbing under the kitchen sink. He is just re attaching the water he got on backwards cold to hot etc. I asked if it was ok to let water out of the sink and .. yep you guessed it the drains let the water out completely under the sink. LOL so…. second project for the day… new rubber flanges to connect plumbing draines to the sink. What next??? He is not laughing.

    Lovely pick these beads go great together.

    Dawn, what a great creative dilemma – heart shaped tourmalinated beads – the berry pearls you have here would add a great burst of color. What about some pink coral, or maybe some rhodonite with pyrite, or maybe pink opal, since it already has a touch of black in it? Heck, even some rhodocrosite would add a nice contrast! Look forward to hearing about how your designing with these lovely beads goes! :)

  21. J Yee smart chick
    J Yee smart chick says:

    BTW – looking at the lovely vanilla pearls, what about some African opal, it has some nice beige and touches of black, to bring out the black in your tourmalinated beads, and add some fairly neutral warmth? plus the berry pearls? :)

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thanks Ravin, Alice, Faith and Smart Chick. You have all given me alot of food for thought. Still haven’t had a chance to try any other options. !!@&%$*(#@$ The swear words are still hanging in the air! I think me and the boys will go for a long walk. Faith I think you will be safe at the mall.

    Dawn, I don’t know if the pick that is showing now is what you had at the start of the day — but I love that combo! The berry pearls are fab with the tourmilated quartz, the black is always wonderful with it, and the moonstone & ruby quartz make for great accents! I can’t wait to see the finished product!!! :D

    BTW, I also love your description of your second option — you just may have to create two different pieces! 8)

  24. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank you Lynn. Everything that you see up there hasn’t been changed yet. I do actually have real ruby (3 or 4mm that I can use) as well as the ruby quartz. I will post a couple more options later. The cussing is getting bad again. So far I am leaning towrds the berry and ivory pearls.

    Dawn, you’ve got me LOL with your cussing!!! :D

    Not my Cussing …..It’s Hubbies Cussing. He is trying to hook up new technology 46 inch flat screen and everything else.

    ROTFLOL — Oops! My mistake! I thought you were cussing over your designs! 8O

  28. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    What do you think of the #2 pick. I think I like the first one better. Although I may join him and start cussing myself.

  29. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    At this point Chickies I am leaning toward this first idea! I appreciate all of your help and input. I may play with a combo with 1 & 3 but I think this is a go. I will keep you posted on my progress.
