Rocky, The Turtle

About this design:

Another necklace designed around the Jade Scott pendant. The Magic Agate that I purchased from Lima Beads a little while back, seemed to fit the little guy perfectly.


Magic Agate, two Gaea beads from a bundle, black magic 2x3mm fire polished rondelles, Vintaj clasp from Lima Beads. Green Fluorite rice, and matte rounds, Serpentine rounds, antique brass spacers from local bead shop. PC lentil from beadsbyearthtone on etsy. Outwest lampwork rondelles. Teal lampwork rondelles from yukidesigns, Golem studio tubes. Turtle pendant by Jade Scott. Olivine czech picasso rounds and dark garden czech barrels my stash.

    Beautiful design Wanda! Your little turtle pendant is so precious! You’ve matched him perfectly with the magic agate (which I have also, and it’s too cool) and the Golem tubes are awesome with it all!

    Love! That turtle is precious and I love the colors you put with him! Really soft, but yet not summery.

    Great choice of beads to highlight your little turtle, Wanda ! Love the kind-of but not-quite symmetrical look of this necklace – -

    Such a great home you have made for the cute turtle! You and Laud both seem to be able to design with a multitude of beads!! I have not figured that design strategy out…yet!! Can’t wait till I can afford the Golem stuff…it is all awesome!!

    I have the magic agate, too, and I love it but haven’t used it yet…… This is a perfect setting for it and for the turtle!

    Thank you Deb, miss e, Asia and Becky for the wonderful compliments!

    I truly appreciated every ones input on my designs, especially since I`m trying to sell these bad boys at a craft show. Never tried selling before at a show and your words of encouragements ease my stress about it :) So thank you all so much!
