Mostly Green


About this design:

While working on the cross necklace, the green beads snuggled up to this awesome focal bead. I was planning to mix it with purples, but it really is Mostly Green.

As I finished this piece, I kept thinking about those gorgeous new druzy pendants that just arrived at LB. I've been trying to convince myself that I didn't NEED a druzy pendant. Then I compromised with my guilty conscience and simply decided that "I WANT it" is a good enough reason. Do I get the blue or the green druzy??? Chalcedony or Canadian jade?

Components:

Purple lace agate focal (zuligems Etsy). Green rondelles, crystals and seedbeads. Silver findings.

    Gorgeous piece Julie!! I think the green looks spectacular with that purple lace agate focal.

    Well I would go for the green if the choices were only blue and green. The green with the silver though, not fond of gold. Personally I like the pink one with the silver for some reason, cause I’m not a pink girl normally. But I like the middle pink one with the silver in the view the variance. I also wish they weren’t wrapped in silver or gold, just a plane druzy.

    The purple is vivid in the focal. I’m glad you chose the green, it’s beautiful.
