    You had me at Yellow Opal ! What a lovely piece.
    Did you start with the focal bead as your inspiration? It has such a nice blend of colors.

    Nancy: Yes, the focal bead was the inspiration for this necklace and my love for colors that are southwest. Thank you so much for you comment.

    Very, very nice!
    Am glad to see this color combination and to know that you see “Southwest” in it too. I did one several years ago with these very colors, with the addition of turquoise and pyrite. Someone with a love for the Southwest snatched it in a hurry. This will go quickly too! (Unless it’s yours.) ;-)

    so THAT’S where that little Lampwork piece went! I’m loving this design. Are the two connected– the chain portion and the beaded part? I love them together like that! So cool, PPR :-)
