“Creamy Swirls”


Description from Julie Shane: When I unwrapped my order from "gemstone day" the freshwater shell nuggets landed next to the African opals. They are amazing together. Who'd've thunk it?

    They do look very good together. Great…thanks…now I want some to go with the nuggets I have.
    Look its Eric Clapton again in the top left corner.

    Deb, I just don’t see Clapton in the pearls. Where? How?

    Deb Harding says:

    I thonk because the picture is soooo tiny on my phone it crams stuff together more. But if you look at the biggesr nugget in the middle there is a swirl that looks like an eye. In a really small picture it compresses down to an eye with a partial eyebrow ridge and part of the nose.

    MMMmmmmmmmm……….. looks good enough to eat – like penuche (SP?). Great pick Julie. My husband could never understand why I had to have so many beads. We don’t always know what we’re going to end up with do we!
