About this design:

Three strand bracelet I sent off to a friend who lives in England a few days a reminder that I always think of her! :) all the beads are from a stash box that always sits at my local beads store. Here's to hoping that she will love it! I won't get to see her any time soon, but sending off packages and cards keep us always connected.

Oh, and the earrings- I think those are green onyx but I'm not entirely sure.

    Oh lucky friend!! Such a beautiful display of stones. I could stare at this for hours. I agree that the earrings are probably Green Onyx.

    Thanks for the kind words! You made my day brighter…my day of slaving over a final paper that’s just so difficult to put together! :)

    Oh, and the stashbox…yes, the local store has a stashbox that nobody but I seem to love so much! The owner just puts the old, unsold single stones there and leaves little tiny bags for people to fill. I’ll post a pic of the random stuff I picked out later!
