White Tears

About this design:

This was another piece that took some time to put together the white howlite gemstones I ordered from LB and it took a minute to attach it. But I kept looking at it for days to decide how I wanted it too finish . And while looking for other materials to finish it I remembered I had these little silver barrel shaped beads bought from LB also . Which was exactly what I was looking for .


White howlite teardrop flat gemstone and silver beads.

    Wow, I really like this design! I’m really partial to white howlite – I think it is an under-appreciated stone (just my silly opinion).
    Your design really brings out its beauty. Love all the different shapes of beads.
    I’ll bet this would look great over a dark, cobalt blue or black turtleneck (it’s cold here!)

    Thank you guys , it took a minute to finish this piece Lois I did not want to overshadow the white howlite so I played different gemstones next to it untill I got the right fit for it.
