    The focal is Black Pyrite if that is what you mean. It has a spider web type of veining on the piece. Thanks Lorrie!

    Really eye-catching, I love those orange beads

  12. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Thank-you Stormy, Amanda, Boston Lady, Sarah and Sparklechick! I truly appreciate your nice comments! The fun part is in the bead swap you don’t know what kind of beads the other person will send you. If forces you to work out of your comfort zone and look at things differently because you are making this piece for another person. It has personality from each person!
