    First word that popped into my mind seeing the picture was “soft”; then “feminine” then “I WANT THIS!!!”.

    Thank You, chickies :) I first thought about adding to it some black onyx… but desided it will kill the softness of the chalcedony. Then Lima got Blue Lase faceted roundelles and… it was the “partner”!

    You definitely made the right decision, Julia — the black onyx would have been too distracting from the soft, delicate chalcedony. :)

    Little Round Chick says:

    A truly lovely design, Julia. And you were right about the black onyx. It would over power the delicate color of the other beads. :)
