50 Shades of Gray-Not Quite.

About this design:

Found this graduated strand of gray jasper beads at the last gem show I went to. As soon as I saw it I thought about 50 Shades. Yes, I am naughty...I read the book...all 3 of them!


Graduated chunky gray jasper rondelles ranging from 12mm to 20mm in size, Bali silver bead cones, German silver base beads, TierraCast tapered toggle from Lima Beads, Soft Flex .024 beading wire and .024 twisted tornado moonlight crimps.
