“Mystic blue ...”


Description from Chicky Red-haired Grammy: I splurged on a half strand of the 15-16 mm bronze opalite and it is an interesting bead. Light blue-ish aqua with the bronze on one side. When I started to work with it, the Mystic Blue beads seems to work the best with a bit of a rosy translucent bronze as accent. Copper is too strong and Vintaj brass too dark. The GG luna piece is quite lovely with it. A simple design works best for me.

16" strand $7.95

    Thank you all! I did a relatively simple necklace with the opalite, mystic blue squares, tiny Swarovski bicones and brass coloured glass beads and from it hung the GG luna lady. I am pleased with it.
