    Great to have you back in the Gallery, Asia ! The patinas are fabulous and the contrast of textures is so eye-catching – - -

    Lovely…I really love those stripey beads. One question…how does it wear/feel with the domed pendant on the side?

    Good question Deb and how long is the necklace? This is so interesting – I bought one of those pendants.

    Never thought of using rust colors on that pendant–fixated on green/blues, I guess. Really like the effect. The focal stones are amazing.

    Thanks, Nancy it is 19 inches, Deb it really feels great, I will try to get a pick like Becky suggested.

    I was wondering in case I ever decided to put one there. I’ve had things look good and then put them on and nope, uncomfortable. That is annoying as it can be.

    Gorgeous. I love all the different elements.

    The slab is so cool and the pendant rocks.
    I’ve only seen the pendant patina’d blue and green as Laud mentioned.

    Oh yea, did you double wrap the smaller beads? I really like the look.

    Asia says:

    Thank you, Becky I can’t find anything suitable as a prop. all wrong sizes and I’m beat and tiered, you will have to wait till tomorrow evening for the picture. Deb,It really sits very nice the pendant is only domed 1/4 inch deep, but it makes it smaller and more interesting. Peggy, yes I did double wrap them :D

    Asia says:

    Becky there is the picture for you, got me quite a homework, could not find any suitable prop. either the seize was wrong or the color, this is the best I can do!
