    Wow, into faves. I wish this pic would have been on here yesterday before I visited bead shop. Had some kyanite in my hands but put it back because wasn’t sure what to put with it. Oh well, guess I’ll HAVE to go back. My closest bead shop (other than the chain stores) is almost two hrs. away so I don’t get there often. Hmmm, that just might be a good thing

    Also meant to say Debra, just a suggestion ~ if you had some chain, you could have woven that through the wire at the bottom say about 8 to 10 links, and then attached the crystals to each link of the chain to hang down from.
