Chatter

For Jenny--warmest hugs


About this design:

The marketing director for the nonprofit where I'm board chair is also moving on. Her expertise increased the sales in our gallery shop (thereby increasing my consignment sales). This is my thank-you to her for doing such a great job marketing the art programs, gallery shows and other events. She prefers silver and was drawn to the warmer toned beads in designs I consigned at the gallery. So...silver and fire agate came to mind.

Components:

Fire Agate, silver-plated tubes, beads and clasp.

    I love the scalloped effect from the curved tubes. I wish I could see this one in person! Wendi’s Druzi is also superb. I didn’t realize there were any pale ones on that strand – I’d only see the dark ones.

    I usually use those tubes for bracelets on each side of the wrist so it’s nice to see them used another way. Thanks for the inspiration. :-) SLS

    Thanks for the kind words, all. It makes me feel more confident about Jenny’s reaction when she receives this at the reception this evening.

    SLS–I’ve done some earrings and bracelets using the big tubes and delicate necklaces using more petite metal tubes. I wanted a sinuous necklace for Jenny but the large fire agate rounds needed more sizable tubes so I reached into the bracelet supply box et voila.

    This will be a style I offer in a selection of other beads during my summer shows.
