    Julie, what an amazing combo! I have some African opal & have not known what to pair it with until now. Thanks for the idea! :D

    Ditto, ditto, ditto! I was already putting the opal crystals with the African version but never would have thought to add pyrite! Very nice!

    Thank you to all my chickie friends. I am SO in love with this combo! It’s all in my wish list.
    I’m going to try something new… WAIT and see if it makes POD in any of our recent picks. We’ve all used these pieces since they are so cool.
    Delayed gratification… SO difficult!

Add your thoughts!
