    What a fabulous set, Julia — love the design, color, and the adding of the focal off-center! Great idea! :D

    Thank you, Little Round Chick!!

    Thank You, Lynn :) My husband looked and asked me what is wrong with you? Everything you bead lately is off center!!??? he is an engineer so…. I told him it is ‘in’ now days…ha!

    I know exactly what you mean about engineers, Julia — my hubby is one, too, and thinks in a very logical manner. Since I don’t (LOL), we balance each other out. :)

    Yes, my husband tells me that I am dreamer who needs to ground herself and walk in the real world…

    I too love the off center design. I’m also married to a retired engineer, but he still thinks like one, so doesn’t like my cock-eyed looks. Also love Malachite and you have done a nice job with it.

    Very clever design and match with malachite, it is such a fabulous stone but not easy to use! :D Funny how many creative/engineer couples there are; same thing here ;D Odd that opposites should attract like this, no?

    Thank You, chickies :) ))

    My husband and I are opposites in our horoscopes too: He is Aries, I am Pieces. He is Snake and I am Rat. But they say if such union does happen it is a very fascinating one! I’ll say! Ha-ha :) WE are married for 41 year!

    LOL!! We’re opposites in horoscopes too! I’m a Leo and he’s an Aquarius and I’m a Dragon and he’s a Horse ;P We have a long way to go to 41 yrs though, only 17 so far and fascinating is an euphemism!! More like an never ending challenge!
