Lava Rock ON!

About this design:

I don't have anything with Lava Rock, and LB's selection was gorgeous. This is my bold look for the season.


Lava Rock, Feldspar, citrine polished drops, Swarovski crystals....

    i find it hard to design with the lava rock but you’ve certainly done it justice here. Beautiful.

    Bold, beautiful, and very sexy! I love this design, Shanti. You should rename it with something Jungle Diva-ish… LOL Awesome combination, and I love the Feldspar, such a chameleon stone!

    WOW! I too find lava rock difficult to work with.
    It’s gorgeous with feldspar and the citrine really makes it sparkle!!

    Love what you’ve done with the lave rock. I’ve never used big beads like this. My only venture into lava has been small polished stones. The colors and combo of different textures is a real winner. :)
