About this design:

The saying just popped into my head when I was sorting the beads before stringing.

I made some matching earrings but didn't get a pic yet.

I love the beautiful smokey quartz , really gorgeous color(from Lima Beads)
The golden yellow pearls with a single larger copper pearl, just seem to add the final touch.
Nice with a little black dress..~


Swarovski pearls, glass pearls, smokey quartz, gold plated clasp, findings and spacers

    Right into my faves, even if I can’t wear gold, well not real, yellow gold…gives me hives =( have no clue why white, rose or black hills gold don’t do it.

    Ravin, are you sensitive to copper?
    Maybe it is because of higher copper content…just a guess~

    Dear trinkets ~ this is fabulous, and I really like the way you added the bali spacers for some extra pizzaz. Texas tea indeed.
