Triangles!


About this design:

My "boss" who is really a fellow teacher but is the Director of our Academy has taken a position at Tennessee beginning next fall. So ORANGE is her new color. I bought a few strands of carnelian to help her co-ordinate black and gray and brown into orange. Jen was SO happy this morning when I gave her this set. Her smile made it all worthwhile. :)

Components:

LB's Carnelian triangle cut stones -- LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!! Silver heishi and findings.The triangles tend to sit together when displayed for photos. However, they are funky and mobile on the wrist! Cool!!!

    Dear LB…
    Obviously we ALL love this unusual cut of stone. PLEASE hunt and search for more. These are SO awesome in person. They are cute and funky, but can also be dressy and unique.
