    This is so pretty,and whimsical. The contrast of the skull and the pave bead is cool. I could just about EAT those faceted Chalcedony beads. Can’t get enough of that stone. ;)

    I would so wear this! I must make myself a version of this, if you don’t mind. I have several skulls but mothing quite as pretty as the chalcedony. Oh well enough about me. The bracelet is perfect!

    Eeka Mouse says:

    Great textural contrasts: the smooth (yet veined) magnesite w/ the sparkly faceted chacedony. The skull finishes it off with a ta-da! I would wear this frequently. (Sweet & innocent, w/a twist)
