About this design:

This necklace design just happened by itself while I was playing with this beautiful metal flower and some stones waiting for my friends to arrive!
I loved those colors together and I had to do the necklace, then the bracelets and finally the earrings and this set was created!

Components:

Amethyst, Blue coral, Malachite, Fluorite, Lapis, metal focal flower and jumprings

    Betty, this is a beautiful set. Love the focal on the necklace and the bracelet is so cute.

    Your friends must have been very late if you had the time to do all this wire wrapping! LOL. SLS

    HAHAHA — I thought the same thing that Shannon did — Either your friends were really late or you work super-fast, Betty! Glad you cleared that up for me! 8O

    I love this entire set — the focal, the colors, & your designs! :D

    Love this Betty. It’s always surprising to me how some pieces just come to you and fall right into place and others we labor over till it satisfies us.

    Your color combination is very cool.
    BTW – I have a couple of lilies just like yours blooming in my yard right now. Cool pic on the flowers too….:>)

    Thanks Lynn and Ravin!
    I bought the blue coral from a shop at the Gulf of Aqaba but you can order it from Fire Mountain Gems and bead site they have a variety of blue corals!
