Any Way You Slice It

About this design:

I found the turquoise slices at a trunk show locally. I'm told they're from the campitos mine in mexico. I have a string of large and a string of the smaller ones. I knew I had to split them up to make anything I made with them affordable. This is for sale, but that hasn't stopped me from wearing it. It brightened up my basic black dress last week!

    Yes Shannon, they were expensive, but so worth it!
    The show was in December – just before Christmas. My home show had been cancelled due to the blizzard and I should not have spent the money, but I’m so glad I did!
