“Something so Gorgeous”

Description from Granny Nancy: ... that when I first got into beading, I chose carnelian - all kinds and shapes. I strayed from the perfectly round and solid colors with preference for nuggets, naturals, and faceted beads.

Consequently I made a lot of pieces with the rather large stash I acquired. And I made myself some as well. My first 2 strand was with carnelian. My accents were often gold but now I have gravitated towards antique brass.

    Nancy- This is beautiful. I can see why you were drawn to carnelian. Always love your layouts of your picks also.

    Antique brass is a lovely complement to Carnelian. My stash is overflowing with Carnelian & Agates–definitely a favorite of mine also. I love the variations of color & visual depth the chalcedony group of stones have.

    Nancy, I love this!! I started with rose quartz and Red Creek jasper and gravitated to Carnelian and style tend to add to my collection. It is a color we can use year round.

    OOOh! I’m really liking the antique brass with this too! Love the look of carnelian but struggle with how to use it in jewelry. Antique brass may be just the ticket. Thanks, Nancy!

    Kudos on your POD! We are of one mind when it comes to this beautiful stone…even down to the shapes. I like it with antique copper as well as the antique brass.

    Congrats on your gorgeous POD! I also love Carnelian, all types. The antique brass accents the stone, but doesn’t overwhelm it. Beautiful pick!
