About this design:

The continuing desire to create summery light-heated pieces. I particularly love the amber and purple jasper together.


LB Purple jasper, chain, TC silver beads; Czech beads and amber and the 2 large blue beads from my stash. I've had them so long I don't know what they are. Pendant created by sacrificing and old necklace and removing the flat orange disk.

    Nice mix of colorful stones. I especially love the amber nuggets and the light they bring to the necklace.

    Oh..Now I want some amber,and it’s realy expensive!This is a lovely creation. I would never be creative enough to put the chunky blue with the the rest,but they look wonderful.
    Isn’t it fun when you find something in your stash that just sez “hey hey..psst over here..remember us?” :)

    Thanks all for the kind comments.
    Nancy Mc – I got the amber beads on sale; they are irregular and a strand was $16; used sparingly, I figure it’s not high a price. Beadaholic – I agree this necklace could be an Indian Summer piece.
