Red Aventurine Tapestry

About this design:

I bought the focal on sale, it wasn't something I would buy, but it was only .50. I found the faceted rectangles & chips on another site & they matched perfectly! When I was taking the picture, this little bug wanted his picture taken as well!


Red Aventurine faceted rectangles, chips, gold seed beads, gold chain, clasp & spacers. Acrylic focal bead

    Lovely, lovely … even lovelier knowing that it all started with an “outside the comfort zone” purchase. Be proud of it … it’s gorgeous

    I try over and over to think outside the box. Sometimes it’s all I can do to make an asymmetrical design!
