About this design:

    This is a gorgeous version of chips. Love the amethyst and smokey quarts together. Very dressy
    look. The focal bead is lovely. Did it come from Lima Beads?

    What a beautiful set, Shani! I love using chips, too. They can really stretch the beading dollar on high-end items, too. :D

    I really like the lush quality of the triple strand necklace, and I agree about the chips. In fact I’ve got quite a few sitting in a case, and I can hear them calling me. : )

    The amythest is beautiful with the smoky quartz. I love it when people pair stones I would never think of putting together, and in this case, the result is amazing … like the pendant too.
