    Beautiful work as always,Laud. I love the way you complimented those awesome lampwork beads. Aren’t they great? The brass was a nice choice with these stones as well. You have a gift for balance and style.

    I wanted a clasp with a swirl shape (reminds me of waves), and the striations on the turquoise is sort of brass colored (okay, maybe it’s brown, but it’s LIGHT brown). The hardest thing to find were crream-colored stones. Happily, I had some African opal.
