Shades of blue...

About this design:

I was inspired by the color of a shirt that I bought because it reminded me of Blue Chalcedony. This is how I fell in love with Blue Chalcedony and Sodalite. Blue is my favorite color and I thought the combination works great.


Lima Beads - Chalcedony Faceted Rondelle 9x14mm, Sodalite Faceted Round 6mm. Also, sterling silver beads and clasp and a small very old Turquoise charm.

    Just lovely to look at. The soft blue of the Chalcedony look wonderful with the Sodalite.
    Isn’t it fun,when you find an old gem charm in the stash?
