Envious Hearts


About this design:

Envious Hearts is designed around this three piece chrysocolla heart focal bead set. When I showed Bill (hubby) the finished piece last night, he said, "Well that didn't take very long to make!" I told him, "Oh yes it did! I've been creating this necklace for weeks in my head!" The earrings and bracelet did just follow suit last night!

Components:

Chrysocolla focal bead set, Lapis horseyes, Chrysocolla ovals, green agate barrels and blue adventurine beads with SP pewter beads, beadcaps, spacers and hook clasp.

    Unque cut of stones for pendant. Very pretty. Thinking about the design and the creativity behind it is half the battle. Making it come to life is the satisfaction. Ncie Job! ;)

    Thank you for the nice comments! I have several focal stone sets (10 I think). They were unusual and I always like something different!

    I love this. I would like to see a photo on a lighter back ground. Old eyes you know. I just could see all these splendid stone and great design better. I love this and how you’ve designed. Very elegant and chic! Wow!! It delights the senses.

    I really like this piece, Lindy! It’s pretty and unique. I’m not usually big on hearts but the fact that they’re upside-down makes them cool. lol :P

    Wow oh wow, gorgeous. I love it. Just realized both of us Lindas have a hubby “Bill” wouldn’t that get confusing at a dinner party? This set is super. Lots of people think we pick up a piece of wire and the beads fall onto it. If only it were that easy. Sometimes, that does seem the case though.
