    Beautiful. A little tribal; a little beach; all good!

  2. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    I remember that pick. And oh my gosh this is beautiful! Like Laud said its beachy…but not a USA beach.

    Peggy3 says:

    I’m guessing that’s jasper?
    Love how all the muted blend together and stand out at the same time

    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    Thank you Laud, Deb and Peggy!

    Yes Peggy it’s Impression Jasper. The czech glass beads from my pick didn’t match the jasper. They were more blue instead of the greenish undertone I found the jasper to have, once I saw it in real. Either did the ribbon. I would be taking a wild guess, but I think the Aventurine Heishi I order might go with the Impression jasper also. Guess I will see when it arrives.

    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    Thank you Asia, Susie and Becky!

    I’m not a big fan of the dyed impression I have to admit. But when I received this undyed stuff I was like a little kid in a candy store. I was so impressed with it(hehe)!
