    Julie, I love your combo of colors & textures! So beautiful! :D

    While I do love my “sparklies,” I also love the softness of matte beads. Those new red creek jaspers are very appealing to me. 8)

    Julie, matte is by no means friendless! i’m most partial to matte black & welcoming the arrival of all the new ‘mattes’!…in fact, i would like Raku Stan’s Rust Jumbo to be my new BF! LOL!

    Loving this pick and I do love matte as well. Often the matte finish will enhance the subtle nuances often lost in a shiny surface. Have you ever seen a display piece of granite withe 1/2 honed and 1/2 polished? Do not look like the same material.
    Have fun and please post the finished piece!
