    This is gorgeous. The pendant is awesome, and I really love what you did with it. I like the black beads and chain, and the small silver accent beads really add to the overall design. India? Wow!

    Wow, Betty!
    This piece is stunning!
    Your design is just perfect to highlight the pendant, but not overpower it.

    I wanna go to India!!!

    Betty, this neckace design is perfect with that fabulous pendant! Great color and gem choices! :D

    Jeanne, you know I live in Indiana — almost sounds like “India” — you could come visit me! There is an LBS less than 15 minutes from my house….. :D

    Thanks ladies I went to an ayurvedic spa with a full program so I did not have enough time to shop for stone as I wanted.
    Jeannes maybe Indiana will be a better choice with LBS near Lynn home!

    Betty, the pendant is beautiful!! I can see what inspired you to make the necklace … and great job on the wire wrapping!!

    I have a friend living in India now … should I tell her to pick up some silver for me?? I was always thinking gemstones when I think of India but your beautiful pendant is making me think differently! SLS

    Lovely! Don’t you love it when you buy a stone or component that fills you with joy, hold on to it for a while & then suddenly “find” just the right combination to pair it with? Your designs are wonderful, thanks for sharing.
