Opals Squared

About this design:

I actually won this strand of Pink Paruvian Opals. A local bead shop would have a Diva night once a month. They would have things discounted for that night and have contests - one of which was name that bead. I won this strand because I was the only lady who knew what stone it was. I designed this around my free stand of beads.


Pink Paruvian Opals cubes, grey matte sead beads, 6mm Swavorksi crystals, mystery stone pendant

    Well I really like this very very much. I have to ask are we having a contest here for 20% off the pick of the day here. I need to know the name of the mystery stone. LOL.

    Thank you – all for your compliments. I think Lima did do a mystery bead contest. They posted a picture of a bead that was so distorted I don’t know how anyone could have figured out what it was.

Add your thoughts!
