Ready For Summer

About this design:

I got these wonderful abalone beads from Lima, and couldn't wait to make something with them. Seemed like turquoise was the only thing to go with it that I had.....


turquoise from my (much too big) stash, abalone focal from Lima Beads, pewter beads and findings.

    Some how I missed those abalone beads. But this is a gorgeous set. Turquoise is definitely one of my faves and abalone is right up there. Usually has some slight purple reflection.
