    Oh I love, love, love these colors. I have so many things that would go with it. The color blocks are really interesting as well. Beautiful, Julia.

    Beautiful as always Julia!

    So you think it is a good birthday present for a 45 year old very tall woman, who loves chocolate? ;)

  4. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank You Del and Kats!
    I am thinking of making another one like it but for the sale. Maybe a bit longer so it could be tied in the knot?

    Deb Harding says:

    It is scrumptious Julia!! If she does not love this she is crazy. Awesome pattern.

    Love the colors in this one, Julia! It’s just so delicious!

    DayLily aka Del says:

    Who wouldn’t love it?? The long knot would be very beautiful.

  9. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Ladies , do you think it would be better if I to put one Zwarovski, same as in earrings to the necklace’s toggle? or it is going to be an ‘over kill’?

  10. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank you Wanda :)

  11. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank You Del :) I am going to get the beads for another one :) ….

    Lois D says:

    Oh, my, oh, my….this is gorgeous! Lucky girlfriend, that she is!
    The pattern is beautiful. I vote ‘yes!’ for the additional crystal by the toggle, but, that’s just me. Love a touch of crystal anywhere.
    A longer length allowing for a knot would be lovely, Julia!

    Gorgeous set!!! WOW!!!

  14. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank you, Lois! :)

    Thank You , Becky! :)

    I used 36gm of beads here, so I think 18gm more will give it a knot… ;)

    Stunning! She should love it- it’s very chocolatey and delicious looking! I love how rich the colors are- another beautiful job! =^___^=

  19. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank You, Sonja :) I was thinking to use rustic type of chocolate colored paper for packaging ;) and to attach a truffle to it…

    Gail Layne says:

    Oh my, what fabulous, rich colors! The pattern is stunning and the mix of metals adds even more interest. Just beautiful!
