    What a fun necklace! I love the colors in this piece…they’re fantastic together! It reminds me a little of gumballs-that’s a good thing. Wonderful assortment of gemstones here too. I love it!

    By George, I think he’s got it! We’ve got a new designer in the Gallery!
    Ditto the other comments, especially CAS. It certainly has Southwest flair to it. And Violet, tell Eric I love it!

    On another note, LB used to carry strands of mixed gems like this in 4, 6 and 8mm sizes. It’s been a long time since they’ve carried them, I hope with their new goal of rebuilding their gemstone inventory they get them again. I loved them for just this type of design and so many others! Please LB, can you get them again?
