    You’ve been busy, Christine!
    This is stunning! I love the deep plum tones!
    where do you find your fabulous pendants?

    BTW – Larry was in Mystic today and he didn’t take me! The nerve!

  2. CAS
    CAS says:

    Did he bring back beads at least??? And, yes I’ve been on a bit of a tear lately, I’ve made 9 necklaces in the past week (4 in one day). :D

    CAS, this is a fabulous piece.

    He did not :(

    So – Is there a reason for this frenzy?

  5. CAS
    CAS says:

    Just the creative juices flowing … :D :D

    You should start whispering in Larry’s ear at night … “Mystic = beads, Mystic = beads, Mystic = beads” … ;)

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Well, first I love purples! Second, I love this necklace and pendant! Third, I never would have thought to add the leopardskin jasper to it, yet it is a perfect addition! Great choices, Christine! :D

    Isn’t it funny how sometimes we bead in “spurts” or “tears”? Once those creative juices get flowing, look out!!! ;-)

    Christine, you’re going to have to open your own shop! Another gorgeous Christine Creation! Love the balance, love the colors…oh heck, just love it!

    I think I’m spending too much time on here ~ I’ve started using the American spelling of “colour”! :)

  13. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Christine, I’m envious. I don’t think there’s any words in the dictionary to describe how gorgeous all of your pieces are. Fabulous. Starsparkle, when you spell using the “ou” instead of “o”, it is the Canadian way, eh. (or British, if you like)LOL

    CAS, CAS, CAS!! You are just a never ending show of inspiration!! I know you are probably tired of
    hearing this but; I love this too!!! :-D
    Perfect blend of stones and pattern and color…!!

    Are your pendants from E-Bay(of which you spoke of before) or ?????

  15. CAS
    CAS says:

    Yes Mary, the pendants are from my favorite pendant source on ebay.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Chickys for all of the kind words and encouragement. You … validate me … :)
