A Single Blossom

Swirled

Inspired by a fresh pick recently, picked out some beads with soft blue, teal, lime colors. Mostly LB's beads, some from local M's

Peace

I have had this pink (don't know what stone) cross for years...tried on a couple of occasions to make something with it. The rhodonite (I think)...

Darkest Before Dawn

I was in a pearl mood I guess. Mystic Black pearls, picasso gold rounds, and black twisted oval beads. Matching earrings complete the set.


Ancient Wings

The Beat of a Big Brass Heart

Got some 'special' pearls to play with! Went big & bold on this one, using the larger size shell pearls and a big hammered heart with some Vintaj...
