"Snow White"

About this design:

The lovely carved shell leaves inspired me to create "Snow White". It is a very simple design with only three elements, but the look makes a statement. I used seven of the carved shell leaves, 8mm cracked quartz rounds and shell heishi beads. The only metal is a few tiny daisies. The piece is finished with pearl seed beads and a small twisted toggle clasp.

    Wow,Sylvia.This a a dreamy creation. I ADORE Quartz.It does make a statement. Just the right amount of enhancement with the carved beads and the spacers. I’m sure the leaves probably have a nice lustre to them,that’s hard to see in the photo.

    You have such a good eye for design, and proportion, and color – as mentioned before, I love seeing your work. On one level as you said, this is a simple design, but in your hands it is also a work of art. Beautiful!

    Are the shells kind of a light peach color? They look it in the pic. If so – I love it. If not I love it.
