"No Dress Code"

About this design:

This simple little drop was inspired by the "too blue" Quartz. Obviously dyed,but who cares? I got my friend Doris to model for one photo only. She's a diva,and very hard to work with. ;) Not sure if this should be posted as necklace,or 'other.'


Dyed "Apatite Blue" Quartz,sterling silver head pins,melon ball beads,and chain.

    Love the colour here, and your wrapping is perfect. Personally though, I don’t know how you put up with this diva, I’d fire here, lol!

    Thank you,ladies. Doris is difficult at times,but that girl can hold a pose like nobody’s business.
    Just have to make sure you have enough day old bread and Evian for her. ;D
