“Behind door #1...”


Description from J Yee smart chick: is blue lace agate - one of my fave stones, but one I have difficulty matching up with other kinds of beads...

a friend called me on friday, asking if I would make something (i.e. a piece of jewelry) for an upcoming fundraiser in April, for a nonprofit organization that she is on the board of...

I know the "classical" approach to this stone is to just combine it with sterling silver, maybe white pearls, anything that wont overpower such a delicate gemstone...
I have other possible gemstone strands in my bead boxes, "talking to me also" - :)

    My dear LB chickies, I have missed all of you, and your comments and stories – need I say, I would like anyone else’s comments about working with blue lace agate – Elis mom, thank you for the tip about using labradorite, putting the two together makes me think of seattle skies – the famous “partly cloudy, some chance of sunbreaks…” – so, what do ya all think – go classic w/ blue lace agate, or be more daring… sounds like so far, ya all are for some different kinds of looks – laratbecky, thank you also for recommending peacock pearls and iolite, oooohhh, love it… I was musing over some swarovski colors in some subdued blues that would match what you all are talking about – like the new denim blue, or light sapphire satin… :)
    and, my other possible stones I am mulling over include some lovely purple crazy lace agate rondelles, or ocean jasper, or rose quartz… 8)… to be continued….

    Hey, Joyce is back with one of her fabulous picks! :D
    I’m all for experimenting and finding new, unexpected color combos, but honestly the classic look of this pick is really beautiful. Especially with the pop from the shibuichi clasp. Good luck designing and I hope you post a pic of the results!

    Hey Ivy, how are you and your family doing these days?? How’s the restaurant and your jewelry business??

    Thank you for the encouraging words, so far, I do like the blue lace agate better with some of these so-called darker colored beads, like the winter shell pearls and tanzanite beads… along w/ the lovely GG shibuichi bird n’ clouds clasp – I like the touch of mystery that the black shell and kyanite seem to add – gotta do some picks for some of the other stones I have in my bead box that I am pondering… ;)
