Saphire Special

About this design:

I pick up the rounds and the flat rectangles at a bead show. They were sold to me as Saphire's. Although they look like Rubies to me. Anyway I bought them because I thought they we beautiful and I wrangled a good price for them. Added the Rock Crystal facted rounds that I got from Lima Beads and some Labradorite for interest.


Sapphire ???, Rock Crystal, Labradorite,

    What a lovely necklace. I love the way you spaced the rock crystals among the blue beads … very effective.

    Thank you – glad you like it. Rock Crystal is one of my favorite stones. I love the quality of the Rock Crystal that Lima Beads has. So clear and bright – not cloudy or hazy like some I’ve seen.

    Nope – I’m not sure that this is Saphire Ravin. But that’s what the vendor sold it to me as. I just liked it – so I bought it.
