    I love this one, Jeanne! I especially like the fluorite. It’s going in my favorites. Enjoy your guest! It’s always so much fun to have someone visiting from another country. My daughter’s roommate is from Korea. When she came to visit, I learned a lot!

    Thanks, Cathy – I’ve been working with flourite and green aventurine all weekend for a piece a friend ordered. I love the the flourite adds sparkle. (and it’s affordable – lol)

    These exhanges are a lot of fun, but it is an exhausting 10 days of whirlwind activities. Sam went to Spain in 10th gr. Dominican Republic in 11th and this year we’re just hosting.

    jeannes gems,

    I understand and relate to your use of black in this Pick, makes a lovely and unexpected contrast with your dreamy greens! the green fluorite goes especially well here, of course I’m partial to most of the fluorites, just yellow that I haven’t used much in my own Picks, LOL! thanks for a fun one in response to the latest design challenge about using more findings!!!

    This is really pretty…I have a lot of black, but haven’t used that much of it – so your challenge is well-understood! Sometimes black just seems so formal…I need to change my thinking!

    Thanks for the great comments.
    Joyce, I agree with you about about the yellow flourite – it’s beautiful, but not one of my colors. I tend to stay away from colors that I don’t think are in my personal pallette.

    Shannon -Most of what I’ve done in black is more “formal”. But I’m starting to think outside that box. The matte finish of the brazil stone appears more casual to me.

    Agreed – and I have several strands of that now. Time to get crackin’! Think it’ll be nice w/the African Turq and/or Amazonite! Thnx for the feedback!
