Fish Bones & Fine Quartz

About this design:

I needed to rearrange my stash for some new stuff (from LB, of course). The fish bone charms were on my table when I took the rough-cut green quartz out of its container. I set them together and there it was! I had just enough of each bead to make the set! Karma.


Antique brass plated chain, gunmetal artistic wire--LB, antique brass plated charms (Beadniks--isn't that a cool name for a store? just like Lima Beads! :) ), rough cut green quartz, Fire Mt.

    Yes, Elaine! Sometimes I struggle with pieces, take them apart, rearrange… but this just told me what to make. I know it’s quite odd but that’s me. :) Thanks for all the wonderful encouragement! I have my one and only craft show this year coming up in a week. Eeek! :) I hope somebody likes something!

    I am like you…I create and then rip apart things until they are finally “right”. I am trying to just “let things be”.

    I love the little bonefish! I am sure someone will take them home!

    I would have never thought to put these things together, but you taught me something-”think outside ‘my’ box”. This is reall a cool piece and i love those little fish! Great lesson learned;)
