    Gorgeous Gail! I love how you mix the metals up. I have a hard time doing that. When I try I always think it doesn’t look right, but yours is perfect!

    I agree with Deb. These gemstones and the precious metal sparks speak for themselves just as is. :)

    Thanks for all the wonderful feedback everyone!

    Peggy-Yes, the focal is a lamp work bead from Canyon Echo’s @ Etsy that was very reasonably priced. I’ve purchased several of her beads and they are always very well done.

    It needs nothing added. It is simple and beautiful. I like the silver and gold together.
