Long and Lean for Linda


About this design:

I'm doing Christmas gifts early this year. My BFF LOVES the shoulder dusters. (the longer the better).I hope these 'rock' her world. I'm kinda feeling the nice warm orange of the Carnelian for winter,and offset it with Pyrite and Labradorite.
Pic with the dime was taken in full sun,to show off the juicy warm orange. I know lots of you chicks love that stone. ;)

Components:

Carnelian faceted ovals,briolettes,and tiny rondelles,faceted silver coated Pyrite,tiny Labradorite rondelles,Silver filled half hard craft wire,SP jump rings,and SP ear wires

    You had me at Carnelian Nancy, and then adding Pyrite was the icing on the cake for me. Love the bold but delicate design (if that makes sense) Gorgeous!

    Thanks so much,ladies.I think I was pushing the earbob envelope with these,but I know she will go nuts.
    Wanda..I agree about them being delicate and bold.Pyrite has a bit of a cold look,bit it’s different. (Heavy too). ;)

    The stones are lovely, and the design is fabulous! I’m starting to like the long danglies myself, as my hair seems to be getting longer and longer…
