Sunset for Carnelian

About this design:

I have fallen for carnelians this autumn. I found the strand of pretty carnelian beads at my LBS, and then saw the lampwork glass beads in tones of red and gold on white. Later, I found the white turquoise pendant and beads in my stash...I have had them for a while. I just loved this together.


White turquoise diamond shape pendant, white turq. beads, carnelian beads, lampwork beads, gold tone findings and chain, gold tone beads (in the earrings).

    The lampwork beads are the same style I used in my next post: Falling for Carnelian, and the picture is a little clearer of the glass beads. ;)

    Thank you, everyone. :D
    I am finding the carnelian more versatile than I first thought.
