Charming Cascade

About this design:

It's been awhile...I have stayed away from my design table to get my daughter off to college. Beads kept calling me, but I mostly ignored them. Until last night! I've been "alone" for almost a week now, and the bead voices were loud! LOL So I just eased back into it with wire wrapping some mid-sized beads as charms. Wasnt sure what to do with them after here they are in a cascade!


Amethyst, stablized turquoise, Rose Quartz, some sort of jasper...!
