    What a fun necklace! I love the colors in this piece…they’re fantastic together! It reminds me a little of gumballs-that’s a good thing. Wonderful assortment of gemstones here too. I love it!

    By George, I think he’s got it! We’ve got a new designer in the Gallery!
    Ditto the other comments, especially CAS. It certainly has Southwest flair to it. And Violet, tell Eric I love it!

    On another note, LB used to carry strands of mixed gems like this in 4, 6 and 8mm sizes. It’s been a long time since they’ve carried them, I hope with their new goal of rebuilding their gemstone inventory they get them again. I loved them for just this type of design and so many others! Please LB, can you get them again?

    Love the mix of beads but then I’m into confetti jewelry. Tell Eric it looks like he has a great future in jewelry design. :D
