    Oh thank you everybody. I don’t use a tripod when I shoot and I really should but I am just too lazy to set it up. I am shaky so I try to rest my elbows on the table. I built a cheap light box out of PVC pipe and it really does improve the pictures. I just use the MS-Windows picture editor.

    Perfectly wonderful name for this piece! Love everything about the design and colors.

    A sort of ‘tweedy’ brown outfit, or the same in medium blues; oh there’s lots of things it would go really well with and a matching bracelet and a really striking ‘chapeau’. I love to see hats on gals that can wear them; I can’t. They are SO UPTOWN looking.

    SYD Sydney H says:

    What a beautiful piece. Love all the colors. It does make you think of a beautiful sunset.

  20. Sylvia H
    Sylvia H says:

    Never been to Sedona but these colors also remind me of some of the beautiful sunsets I can see over the Blue Ridge Mountains from my house.

  21. SquirrelGirl aka Angela
    SquirrelGirl aka Angela says:

    Oh yes, I’ve seen many desert sunsets living in Arizona. Your necklace is a great representation of them with the fiery colors and boldness. This necklace is quite the statement! Love it!

  22. DayLily aka Del
    DayLily aka Del says:

    Thanks so much everyone. I have been to Sedona once and absolutely loved the color of the rocks.
