    I always love the pieces that you make! This one is no exception. I love how ou used monstly grey and tan toned beads with the pops of carnelian. It is natural enough to wear with almost any color.

    You are such an interesting designer. I love your work and usually learn something from your posts. The Willendorf (had to Google it) looking Goddess pendant is so fascinating. You’ve made a wonderful necklace with it. I especially like the way you used the Carnelian chips. Great subject and design.

    I minored in art history at university and the Willendorf Goddess – I remember her well! You have provided the perfect necklace for showcasing her in all her glory! ;) Gorgeous use of gemstones, especially Botswana agate. The stones compliment each other. Thoroughly enjoyable to wear, I’m sure! Oh, and thanks for showing her backside! Tee Hee!
