    This is really peaceful looking. I like this stone, but I always felt it was too mild for me…I didn’t know what to do with it. I really like what YOU have done.

    I forgot to mention that I love moonstone, but it is hard to create a design which makes it stand out and not just fade to nothingness. I still have a bunch left from the string I bought and fussing around trying to find a good use for it. I am thinking maybe using it with some black.

    I love the stones you’ve used in this necklace! It’s a great mix, and I think maybe black will be to hard for the moonstone. Maybe you should try the opposite and mix it with some rock crystal instead? But, I always have to try to see how it works! ;-)

    Good idea, I’ll see what the crystal looks like with the moonstone.

    Love this piece! I love blue lace agate, and it looks wonderful with the moonstone! It reminds me of winter ice on Lake Superior!

    I hear you about the moonstone! I have found that pearls in the right shade help pick up the flash! :-)

    I’ll try putting it up against some pearls too. I have quite a collection of pearls so maybe something there will inspire.

    This is a lovely necklace. I find it energizing, full of sparks and lightning in a blue sky!! (Which is something we see a lot of here in Florida.)You put it together just right and all the pieces meld together. Beautifull done!!
