Lily and Rose

About this design:

I am not sure how "they" pick the "in" stones and colors every year, but I was delighted to see rose quartz as one of this year's. I had had the larger flower pendant for a while and hadn't figured out what to do with it - and then one day a few weeks ago, it all seem to come together. I made 2 different necklaces because I have an abundance of this beautiful stone. I use it often in my SIDS Awareness bracelets.
