    Both are gorgeous…I would be hard pressed to decide between them!

    The nice faceting on the variscite really shows up here.

    Me too love them both!! And darn Becky now I need to buy variscite too, can’t resist anymore, I think.

    Becky do you think you can cut the pictures, so one sees the designs clooser. I’m not old nor have bad eyes but wanna look closer :P

    My camera is crap. Any closer and it blurs up even worse than it is. Amber comes back tonight. I will have her take a bunch of pictures for me. She owes me for dogsitting her huskie mix and her Yorkie. I had 2 extra dogs for 5 days–one 65 lbs and very protective, and the other a 4 lb. biscuit who liked to cuddle. My own dog was totally befuddled by the 2 different personalities. :)

    Oh, and I meant Eeka inspired the 2 designs. :) thanks for the suggestions!

    Becky I meant that u could crop them in a program :)

    She works with me at the hospital, too, and we both have the same goal of getting creative businesses going so we can both cut back to half time. :) Right now we are doing favors for each other to get going. I will find her facebook page for her photo biz and email it to you so you can look at her first pictures. She does portraits & I think she is very good at it.

    oh, and the variscite is gorgeous in person. It is smooth and has a glossy finish all around. You will love it!

    Both pairs are great! I would sell both as possibilities with the bracelet. You never know what people are going to like. :)

    Becky, I love them both! I’m partial to the seashells, but….the variscite is amazing! I want it really bad! Trying to abstain, as there’s a big bead show ina few weeks…

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Susia, I will send you better pics of both for the chickies shop as soon as I can get pics from Amber.

    Elis Mom says:

    No worries, Becky. I’m just listing pieces here and there, trying to pace myself. What do you think our target date should be?

    Julie Shane says:

    Both are awesome. I like the shell and pearl for the whimsy. I like the variscite for the simplicity of design.

    Very pretty and summery. I love the Variscite, have never heard or seen it before.

  17. Granny Nancy
    Granny Nancy says:

    Is variscite the one that is turquoise colored? I love those earrings. I’m real partial to turquoise.

  18. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Yes, Nancy. It is that stone. It seems to be much harder than real turquoise and the shine is phenomenal.
