About this design:

I love the color of the Peruvian Amazonite, and thought it would go nicely with the shibuichi chasp ( both from LB). As I was laying them out on the table, I saw that strand of antique copper brown pearls... JUST the color of shibuichi! Added white nugggety pearls as the 3rd element, and voila!

I wear the clasp to the front at about 4:00 or 8:00. ...and I am NOT selling this one!


Peruvian Amazonite, GG shibuichi bird clasp, FWP, 11/0 and 15/0 seedbeads, sterling crimps, accuflex.

    Frida, is there a band named Eeka Mouse? I didn’t know – I picked the name to go with the mouse japanese woodcut picture – I had a friend who had a little pet mouse named ‘Eeka!’
