    You’ve actually given me an idea for some stones I have. I saw a bracelet similiar to this on Pinterest but it had some filigree stuff hanging there also.

    You must really be having fun trying different materials with this design. You could make many more and each would be different. In this one I like how the agate beads surface design is highlighted against the matte texture on the rustic chain. Striking!
    You mentioned Northern Michigan. It brings back memories from my childhood taking the ferry across from Wisconsin and the white sand and pine trees at a campground there. Living in NYC, I really miss the beautiful forests of Northern Wisconsin and Michigan.

    LOL!! Thank you Chickies!! I love big pieces, glad you are enjoying them…Batticat, I don’t think you would like Northern Michigan this time of year…I am still looking at snow!! Blah…I wish we could get to 50 degrees and stay there for a week at least!! I live 50 miles from the Mackinac Bridge…Burrrrr
    Nancy, I found those gorgeous teardrops of Carnelian in Tuscon AZ. I try and go once a year. I missed this year as my Dad passed away in February so I am slowly getting back to the designing. I also do taxes so my busy season just ended last week! :) Thanks again for all the sweet tweets :)
