    Absolutely lovely piece, Cindy! The quartz really pulls out the salmon in the unakite – and really shows off that Tibetan pendant, too! :D

    This is gorgeous, Cindy!
    Love the quartz with the unakite. Is it cherry? The design and colors are perfect with the fabulous pendant!

    ps – love your etsy page! Good luck!
    btw – I noticed that some of your pieces don’t have shipping costs. You might want the check that out. :)

    Buster Browns MoM says:

    thank you ladies!!! I’m really glad you like it. To you Jeanne, the quarts is actually from a strand of volcanic quarts I bought last year at a bead show, I just picked out the pinker ones for this piece, also thank you for checking out my etsy site, I offer free shipping on certain things so not to worry I’ve got it covered. Thanks for the heads up though… :)

    I understand now about the shipping. Makes sense.
