About this design:

This piece is a little bit of a departure for me--that is to say, it's rather on the conservative side. :-) Also, this is the first time I've incorporated CZ into a design.

A nice choice to wear to a business appointment, perhaps?

Components:

Horse eye andalusite and CZ drops both from Lima Beads. Gold freshwater pearls. Copper finish clasp.

    I still see a little of you in there – those CZ drops put it over the top. I really like it – Sometimes we must step out of our comfort zone. YA DID GOOD!

    This is really a beautiful statement. I really like the Septaria beads (never heard of them before), and they look fabulous with the pearls and the Czech beads. Lovely

    Nice piece, but I don’t think it’s Septaria, I think it must be Andalusite. Am I right?

    This is beautiful, Susan! Love the design and the drops! :D

    Wenche, the stones do look like LB’s Andalusite rounds to me, too.

    Look more like Andalusite to me – lots of “x’s” in them. That, to me, is usually the indicator of andalusite. But, I’m NO expert either sooooooo

    I always look for the “X” to indicate Andalusite, too, Linda! LOL

    Absolutely, I got confused. They sure are andalusite–thanks for setting the record straight!

    Actually, your description (above) was correct. It must be Friday and a full moon – everyone seems confused!

    Regardless, it’s a great necklace, and I love Horse Eye Andalusite – perfect for tonight’s Wolf Moon!

    Well, the confusing part is that Susan went back and changed her description from Septaria to Andalusite…..LOL ;)

    Oh Susan I love this. Yes the CZ is a little unlike you however they are a statement piece none the less. I don’t think you can deny this baby yet. It is gorgeous as usual by the way. I love the andalucite big stones.
