Fun With Fluorite

About this design:

While cleaning my bead room the other day I came across these pretty fluorite beads. I have no idea where they came from.. I don't remember buying them.. They didnt come from a bead swap with my daughter.. I am so confused but I love the bracelet! :)


Fluorite, Garnet, Sterling silver beads, Argentium silver
