Wild Lilies

About this design:

These carnelian and yellow opal matte gemstones take on a lovely warm glow when light hits them. I chose to string these on the honey colored Chinese knotting cord and accented with a few pink opal wheels. The pink opal is an unexpected but fitting contrast to the yellow and red/orange. The 6-sided carnelian round makes the perfect focal for this simple strung necklace.

    The new matte gemstones are fabulous! I really like how you played off the colors in this tassel-style design. Love the addition of the Pink Opal :)
