    Very nice! I suspect that in person the copper beads pick up the tones in the turitella even more beautifully than in the pic! Reminds me of a bed of fallen autumn leaves. :)

    Thank you Susan and Jeanne.
    Susan, the copper is a lot brighter in person, and combined with the pearls make the necklace a lot more striking than my picture depicts.
