Fit for a Queen

About this design:

I've just aquired a bunch of Kyanite beads,and have designed something for the Queen. I thought she needed something more casual with this dress.
(Kyanite rocks my world).


Kyanite squares and ovals,Freshwater Pearls,SP wire,spacers,jump rings and SS filled wires.

    Thanks,F.B. I couldn’t decide what to design first,so I went with a simple sea side theme.
    Kyanite is such a dreamy mineral. I did a super zoom pic to share it’s beauty with anyone may not be familiar with it.

    Thanks Deb. It’s a great stone,isn’t it? I sez to to the Queen,I sez..”Your dress is bit pouffy there Elizabeth. How about we tone it down with the hand crafted ear bobs?” I guess she’s ok with it. I still have my head. LOL ;)
