    So pretty. I don’t think I’ve seen Spider Agate before. I’m loving your choice of colors here.
    Can I ask the size of your lentils? What a nice chunky piece. I imagine those stones would feel really nice against the skin. :)

    They are about 20mm across, Nancy. And yes, they feel good….super glossy and cool against the skin. You are very perceptive!

    Thank you,Doc. I thought they were about that size. This would be especially nice to wear on a hot summer day. Beautiful work. :)

    Hi Gayle,

    Thanks for your kind compliment.

    As I have explained before in this wonderful forum offered by Lima Beads, I don’t talk about or identify other bead stores/sources here. It’s not that I am protecting any “trade secrets.” Rather, I feel it is unfair to Lima Beads to do so, since their ultimate goal in providing us this space is to build their business.

    Hope you understand!

    Warm wishes,
    Susan

    Nancy, I think they are sometimes just called “cracked agate.” Maybe you have heard that term?

    Love this, love the colours and the stones, beautiful !

    Doc,
    I get your point but if we follow that line of reasoning then we technically should only post projects that use Lima Beads products and that isn’t the case.
