What I did with the African Opal...

About this design:

I had the African Opal squares (that I ended up not using in the Hummingbird necklace after all...) sitting on my worktable alongside the African Turquoise rounds... I thought the 2 would be complemented with some seafoam-green crystals... and voila!

This one went together sooooooo much faster than the HB one did! It almost assembled itself.


African Opal, African Turquoise, Seafoam Green Crystal Rondelles, seed beads, sterling silver bits & pieces.
