Judy's Gift

About this design:

I made a necklace for a friend as a going away present when she left a job 2 years ago. Last weekend she was my booth buddy at a fresh market, and she offered to put her necklace on the table "to see what happened". Well, it sold! We frowned at each other as I packed it up. So, I made her another. This is the new and improved version!


Blue Goldstone, Onyx, some sort of gray stone, seed beads, chrystals, sliver beads and spacers, gunmetal clasp.

    Lovely combination of stones. I love blue goldstone. Reminds me of a midnight sky filled with stars.

    I love the story about it being sold off your table. :) I can see why it sold. It’s really pretty.

    Love all your work. It’s hard to pic a fave, so I guess it’s all of them. :)
