“I love a challenge”


Description from Julie Shane: I LOVE labrodorite! How can such a neutral color have so much glow? The richness of bronzite and the amazing colors in RedCreek jasper always appeal to me. I'm not sure I like all three stones together, so I tried to pull them all together with the Gaea bundles. How can you go wrong with that design plan? :) I tend to avoid copper. However, it looks pretty good with this combination. I might have to rethink some of my assumptions.

Thanks for the fun challenge! :)

    I love your challenge pick! I love labradorite, too – it *is* an amazing stone. And I think bronzite complements just about everything well. I think your Gaea choices, especially the rivers bundle, go fabulously with your gemstone choices, and the silk ribbons are also perfect! And since, on top of everything else, I do love copper, this definitely has my vote for a POD!
