    Errr stones. Yeah I know Roy! He helped me study for many an exam.

    Sooo for the rest … radio, far infrared, mid infrared (identify molecules by fingerprint), microwave and near infrared (heat sensing frequencies), Roy G. Biv, ultraviolet, soft X-rays (for broken bones), hard X-rays (for crystal structure), gamma rays (for turning simply everything into rubberized goo – wheeee!)

    You had to poke the nerd!

    I really like this concept and the long necklaces are so “IN” this season. Thank you for sharing!! Beautiful colors.

    Regina v says:

    Thanks Shannon. This is also a great way to make good use of the random stray beads that accumulate, especially if (like for me) the idea of a necklace with no pattern is still daunting.
