About this design:

I fell in love with these flower shaped beads and my local bead store was going out of business so..... I’ve thought for awhile that I would use silver with them, but changed my mind on a whim. Gunmetal looks great with it. Now... what to wear with it- I think I need some new clothes (haha)!

Components:

Yellow Peruvian opals, Labradorite, Citrine, and swarovski crystals. Oh and a dark grey suede strap.

    The gunmetal was a great choice! I love the way it picks up the darker mottling in the Yellow Peruvian opal beads. The additional Citrine and Labradorite–Wow, the colors are pulled straight from the opals! It is a great necklace for this time of year as the leaves & flowers start to change colors–well, not here yet–still too warm. May I ask how long these necklaces are with the back strap? Very nice work! :)

    I had never heard of yellow peruvian opal. Its gorgeous. That necklace is awesome and is so beautiful and unique, it belongs in a museum. But then you couldn’t wear it. I love it.

    Very nice;this is an excellent combo of stones, textures, and colors. Gunmetal was definitely a good choice for it.

    This is a beautiful set. I really like the choice of gunmetal and the dark strap. They really bring out the colors of the stones.
