About this design:

This piece was inspired by the wonderful 12mm rounds of Charite I bought at a local bead store. The gorgeous faceted amethyst rondells I bought here on LB (not sure if they have them anymore). And as far as the focal bead, I have no idea what it is! It has been in my bead collection for years now and I can't remember where it came from. My two guesses are either Tibetan silver or silver plated acrylic. If anyone has any ideas or guesses, please let me know!! :)

    Oooh, I love purple and black together! Beautiful design, Janet!

    And no, I can’t help you with the focal bead – guess you could try to polish it and see if it shines up like silver!
