Diamond Rhodacrosite

About this design:

Found this diamond shaped strand of Rhodacrosite at my local bead shop. I had purchased the stick pearls at a bead show - and the 4mm round Rose Quartz beads came from Lima. Had those on had and put this together in no time. I made it extra long. About 26". And I changed up the design - can you see how. No one I've showed it to notices - until I point it out.

    If you’re referring to the asymmetry of the piece, I noticed it right away. If you’re referring to something else, then I have no idea. LOL

    Beautiful necklace and design, Bead-itudes! Love the diamond-shaped Rhodochrosite! :D

    I should have know I couldn’t fool any true beaders. You pick up on it right away.

    I have a really cool local bead shop here in Charlotte, NC. The shop owner always has something unusual.
