“wild iris inspiration”


Description from Crazy Beader: Thanks to "Inspiration" picked by MaryLou last week, I saw the possibilities of the amethyst with the iris chartruese rondelles. Went a different direction with it - - and thought about Granny's purples, too !

    Oh my, I really love this. I would never have thought to use yellow with my precious purples. I must try it some day. I have a large purple drawer and a lot of projects in the works but haven’t been feeling well. Got a shock yesterday that I need to have a stress test done. Hopefully, my irratic heartbeat is from all the stress.

    That Mookaite is perfection here. Great way of pulling the colors out of the ribbon.

    Ditto Coral’s comment – the Mookaite is a tough stone, but you have really found it a perfect home! Nice pick!!

    Beautiful colors. I especially like the pendant and the Czech windows. The rough mookaite is really interesting–thanks for pointing it out. Great pick!
