Before & After

About this design:

This is green goldstone(man-made, imitation, I don't know which). I made this because of the Pantone color of the year. The second picture is before I remembered I had that ugly trapezoid. I can't even remember where I got the ugly thing, but it looks good on this design. The bail on the back was large enough to slide right over the chips.

    The background is a bit bright, but my creative hubby said blue would make the green stand out! It worked! All the other pictures I took made it look like the chips were black!

    I like the trapezoid on this!! It gives the necklace and exotic/ethnic feel, especially with the greenstone.
