About this design:

Friends have asked that I make some chokers, so here is the first. I love blue and purple together.


LB recycled glass, Czech glass beads and some crystal quartz and amethysts that I had on hand.

    Love the combination. I am a big fan of purple and never thought to combine it with blue.

    Very pretty color combination, not one you see everyday either. Looks very elegant and classic. This would make a fantastic bracelet too! :-)

    I bought some of those recycled glass nuggets but hadn’t figured out what to do with them. I love the contrasting texture with the Czech glass.
