Desert Gold For Sure!

About this design:

I have never purchased recycled glass beads before but gave it a try at LB's recent sale. I love nuggets and these Desert Gold ones were fabulous. Mixed with golden bamboo (horse) jasper and golden quartz with antique copper findings.


Golden quartz teardrop pendant, desert gold recycled glass nuggets from LB, golden bamboo jasper, antique copper Del Sol TierraCast toggle from LB, Soft Flex butterscotch beading wire.
