Wrapped Rhyolite


About this design:

I just love the rhyolite square and rectangle beads I got from LB. They have such gorgeous markings. This is mine that I wear all the time.

I've been making a ton of these wrapped stone necklaces lately and selling them in the office here at the RV park we're staying in. It started out as an experiment but now they're going like hotcakes! Yea!

Components:

Rhyolite, 2mm leather cord and Artistic Wire 18 & 20 gauge all from LB

    This is cool Angela. I can see why it is selling. A go with everything classic design but still has the handcrafted look.
