“Green Garnet and Abalone”


Description from Science Chick Runs Sibes: This pick was inspired by Jolene's Birthday #2 FP. As I viewed it I still had beachcomber on my mind and abalone was in my thoughts. I envision mixing the dancing pearls together in some random pattern spaced with the occasional green garnet spears. If it worked I'd pair the green garnet coin and abalone spiral in an active, swinging pendant.

    Awesome how the green pulls green from the abalone. Usually see pinks or purples, but this may be a new go to choice for abalone. I jave the spiral & wasn certain what to do w it. Thx for the inspiration!

    Jacki–I too usually see only the blues, purples and pinks. But, I have a few focal abalone that shimmer with green. I just grabbed the pistachio pearls from your Moonflower POD!
    Lynn, Mary, Frida, et al. Thanks for the comments. This was a fun step out of the box for me.
