    I never knew Russia had their own brand of tortise! It’s cute & has the same coloring as the beads!

    Did you choose Muscovite for the coloring or name? It looks great with the Fossil Stone!

    I never knew either… I’m the google queen! lol
    With the muscovite, I went for the coloring. Not sure if I’d use silver or brass with this one.

    Hmmm, the brass stands out a bit more against the lighter colored beads, but silver would contrast with both, I think. I guess it depends if you want a really warm look or not.

    I don’t seem to have enough brass pieces to finish a design the way I’d like to, so I usually use silver.
