Storm Clouds over a Turquoise Sea

About this design:

I tried pink, blue, green and white before I settled on Turquoise...

These puff Jasper beads remind me of lightening strikes and the sea of turquoise just really make them stand out. What do you think?


Black Water Jasper Puff Beads from LB, Turquoise Disc Beads and a bit of silver and silver toggle clasp

    Isn’t is strange… The pink, grean and/or blue should’ve/could’ve/would’ve been good. But the jaspers waited for their perfect partner. Cool! :)

    I thought pink would have been perfect….but no, it was not a good fit. I think the shape of the turquoise beads is what made them win me over…the pink was little pearls and it made the spacing wrong.

    Unusual color combination, but all together makes an elegantly beautiful necklace. The addition of the silver ties it all together.
