About this design:

I was instantly taken with these beautifully faceted African jasper beads. The colors remind me of scenes from the Serengeti with it's shades of brown, green and a touch of red.

Components:

African jasper, Tierra Cast Bali burst toggle from Lima Beads, Bali gold beads, gold daisy spacers, gold twisted tornado crimps and antique brass Soft Flex beading wire.

    This necklace has got to be one of my very favorites! It has got all the colors of fall I love!! It also reminds me of a beautiful Indian Summer which I hope we get even though a little rain wouldn’t hurt the good old state of Washington about now. Lovely necklace!!

    Thanks everyone for the lovely compliments. I just love earth tones and can’t wait for Fall and all those Autumn shades.
    @gems and stuff…really, I am no great photographer. I have an old Panasonic digital camera that I put on the macro setting for closeups. All of these pictures are taken on my dining room table, under my Ott light. Different kinds of scrap paper and then edit away with my photo editor. Honestly, the photos take more time than the designing does.
