    Yes that was a lot of work but the results are amazing. What a great set. I’m a turquoise blue and aqua girl as well as purples so I can appreciate what you’ve made.

    So beautiful! I really like the focal with its swirly blue-green color. But all the little beads wire wrapped on the chain are what really makes this standout! Beautiful chain also.

    PS: I hadn’t heard the name “earfob” in ages!

    Wow. Fabulous. And I bet the weight isn’t bad either. When I design with the fuller woman in mind I go for the nice light weight materials. Not everyone is a size 4. Some great ideas here. Thank you for sharing.

    Wow! The turquoise focal is beautiful! I love how you paced it to the side with all the smaller wrapped beads in the center. I think they really draw the eye and give your turquoise focal more impact than it would have in the center. Wonderful piece!
