    This necklace caught my eye right away ~ I think it was the pendant, which is a neutral color with the brighter colors further along in the design.

    I bet you look fabulous wearing it Judith!!

    OOOOH, AAAAH,
    LOVE the Hill Tribe Focal Leaf Pandant and it looks terrific with the funky, chunky, brighter green turquoise nuggets!
    I would keep it and wear it too:)
    I also have a necklace with chunky faceted green rutilated quartz beads and smokey quartz beads with a large Hill Tribe posey pendant, that I wear quite often.
