    Thank you Ravin. I hard such a hard time figuring out something to make with the Lodolite. It’s a very heavy stone. I had to use some of the smaller stones in the bunch to make this. Still have some bigger, heavier ones.

    Very pretty set. For your bigger heavy stones you could consider a wrap with something to dangle from a pendant with a little golden color maybe.

    Thank you Karen and Lynn. Well Lynn, I would love to have you for a sister. I have four, and a half sister, and a half brother! Isn’t that crazy? Now I have to figure out what to make for my mom!

    This is very pretty. I’ve not seen this stone before…looks a little like smoky quartz. I’ve been trying to find some of that. Maybe I should look into this – keeping the weight in mind ;)
    Your sister should adore this and love you for it! She’s a lucky girl!

    Tara, your sister Lori is such a lucky girl to be receiving this gorgeous necklace set. It is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. You did a fabulous job on it. I know already she will be asking you to make her another one using some other gemstone. Definitely a winner and a favorite. Thanks for sharing it tonight.

    Beautiful set, Tara! You have lucky sisters!
    The stones are beautiful with the chain you chose.
    I’m curious – Are there 2 separate necklaces or are the chains connected?

    Thank you ladies. Skittles mommy, the Lodolite is a clear stone with (Looks like moss to me) inside. They are very different…each stone is different, and the colors vary. The stone in the very front is actually a purplish color inside…read the description on here. It pretty much explains it.
    Jeanne, there are two different necklaces. I got the idea out of a Bead Style magazine.

    Oh I really like this, I love Lodolite. I like to wire wrap the beads into focals, they have a unique look,( like a little world inside them)

    Thank you Lynn, Sarah & Shannon Leigh. They do look like they have a little world inside them! They look completely different in person then they do on here. Like I said, one is a little purplish inside…the others have greens, browns, some look like sand. I would be really cool if the stuff inside moved!
