Opaque Green Moss Agate Darker

About this design:

You may remember my prior use of the sea green moss agate mixed with light, bright copper. For the remaining stones I went to the darker side using black agate and hematite crystals.

    Yep I remember. I think you said you had more beads & that some had darker markings, which you’ve paired beautifully here with polished black & faceted stones to make a very elegant, very wearable piece!….ps. loved the copper combo. too! Great that you had enuff to make two pieces; I always get more ideas as I’m playing (can’t really call it working!)
