Snow and Ice/Carnivale

About this design:

I had a request to make some large cuffs, so here they are! Snow and Ice was going to be blue/black/purple, except it was so pretty with the snow coming down - guess the colors changed! Carnivale is a little Mardi Gras to me - but I think it's fun!


Snow and Ice: clear quartz, Iolite, Smoky Quartz, pearls, silver plate 16ga wire Carnivale: matte green iris seed beads, multiple Czech crystals

    Thank you my friends! :D

    Yes Cookie, I said SNOW – which actually melted a couple of days after I made these, but we got another foot a couple of days ago, which is still hanging on but might be melted before our next cold front which is Wednesday….

    I ‘test drove’ Carnivale, and now can’t find it – I have to hide jewelry from Mocha and Latte, because they think it’s great fun to chew on metal and use my designs for play toys….sigh! Now, where did I put it?????
