About this design:

I was rummaging thru my stash yesterday and found a shorty strand of aquamarines that I had forgotten about. Inspiration for me these days is a fleeting thing, but they were so beautiful, I just had to put them to good use!


Aquamarine discs, pearls, murano glass, swarovski crystals, and a gold tone clasp.

    Yummy is right! Those are some higher quality aquamarine beads & your other bead choices are perfect! Love the little surprises there-the murano glass & the sparkle from the Swarovski spacers.

    Exquisite!!! The Aquamarine discs & pearls paired together are absolutely stunning! The ‘pops’ using the crystals and large white pearls sets off this asymmetrical design–LOVE! 8O
