    Nancy Mc says: the way. Can you tell me what the oblong beads are? They look like smoky quartz on my computer. Now that I look at blue agate on the site,I want some.If my cart gets any heavier,it’s gonna flip over!

    How beautiful this is to me. I love agate and how variable it is. So many looks to it. And this is a gorgeous look. I never am able to just plan my designs either. The design comes out usually different from what I first envision.

    Lovely! Same here, with me the pieces usually just kind of create themselves :)

    I’m assuming you all are the same as me when I go in a bead store or online. I’m like a kid in a candy store! I can spend hours there :) :)
