    These just glow! and adding the apatite is the perfect accent to the carnelian… makes them stand out more vividly than if you’d used 100% carnelian (sorta like the pinch of salt makes vanilla desserts more intense)

    Thank you so much,Ladies. Eeka…nicely put about the pinch of salt. I had quite a few rondelles that were already wrapped with a simple loop. Once I stacked the Apatite,there was no goin back. ;)

    Hi Ms. Nancy! I love all the cluster earrings you have posted here. I was wondering if you could maybe post some tips and tricks for making these perfect little ear sparklies. I’ve made a few pairs but I can’t seem to get the cluster as full as I’d like. I’m hoping you can give your insight or if you know of a tutorial here on LB for them or something similar I’d appreciate greatly. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work! ~Cindy
