My favorite Aventurine


About this design:

Found these beads hiding in my stash in a humus tub they were saying 'get us out of here' So this is what I came up with. The grayish glass pearls set off the green very well. Hope the ladies at the market like them.

Components:

Green Aventurine, glass pearls, artistic wire, and magnetic fold-over clasp/

    Gorgeous shade of green! And it looks so good with the silver pearls. I’m sure some lucky lady will be walking away with it soon.

    Those carved beads are to die for! The silver pearls really compliment the Aventurine to perfection.

    When I find green stuff in forgotten hummus tubs, it’s mold. I like yours much better! Nice carved beads, the grey pearls are a good accent for them.
