Roses are Red ?? Not

About this design:

The inspiration was the funky agate stones. Found them in a local beads shop - along with the pendant. I had the beads for months and couldn't find anything in my stash that looked right. Then one Thursday I got the email for Lima listing their newest beads - and I saw the Olive Fire Agate - and Knew that was just what I was looking for. THANKS LIMA - foralways keeping it fresh - and bringing us new stones.


Not real sure what kind of Agate the long green stone is/Olive Fire Agate/Champaign fasseted Quartz Rondells

    I love the brass flower too, I didn’t realize it was brass. I’ve never seen brass pendants like that.

    Thanks all for your kind comments. Once I had this made – I decided I needed to keep it for me. The pendant was actually a last minute addition. I sometimes go to my local beadshop and sit for an afternoon making jewelry. I had this necklace laid out – but thought it was missing something – while looking around her shop – I found the pendant – and knew it was just what it needed.
