    An absolutely wonderful piece! The colors are perfect, your work is flawless, and I think the size and color of the beads are perfect to go with the pendant. Bravo!

    Thanks so much Beading Hippie. I have spent so much effort trying to master the beaded focal and I have it down now and I have figured out a way to make it very easy because I don’t like anything complicated.

    I am obsessed with turquoise. I collect all kinds of turquoise beads, focals, and minerals. I love the green turquoise the best. And I love the Tibetan, African and American turquoise. It is becoming very pricey because the supplies are becoming limited.
