About this design:

I just had to have these beads. I don't normally wear orange, but something about these..... Not real original and creative, but had to string them up quick to wear them! My husband asked me, What are you going to do with all this stuff you are making? I said, "Ummm, wear it?" Silly, silly husbands! :)


Fire Agate 14mm round beads and Red Agate chips with a silver tone clasp

    Men, what are we gonna do with ‘em? Can you believe I was an English major? This is great. I’m not an orangeaholic either but seems to be more of it in the stores. This piece isn’t fluorescent or anything, so I think it’s quite pleasing to look at.

    I like this combination!
    Probably wouldn’t wear it myself, but I know plenty of people who would. The fire agate is a really cool stone.
    My husband wants to know when I’m having another open house. he just sees me spending money and not much coming in. Mother’s day is coming soon.

    Thank you ladies! My husband also said, so I don’t have to buy you anymore jewelry? I told him yes you do, but just in loose bead form! ;)

    Jeanne I hope your husband likes to read or sleep. LOL. Mine is not very good at either nor sitting right now either. He did go into the bead store with me in Gainesville the last few times he sits down and learns things by watching the girls string while he waits. lOL

    By the way I’m still getting nice jewelry from my husband he just want to put a price tag on everything I make and put it on E-Bay or sell it to who ever is closest to us at the time I have something on. LOL

    Oh, I love this! And I tell my hubby he can still buy me jewelry- he should buy things I cant yet make myself. He shops for me at 10,000 Villages, so we support fair trade.

    Love this very cheerful. Husbands sometimes they don’t understand a girl can never have enough shoes, jewelery or purses.

    I used to wear diamond and diamond and gold chains and had every gemstone colored ring I I love the natural gemstones and never buy diamonds anymore..I could with the money I’ve spent on beads LOL But tell your husband when you get enough you’ll start giving gifts and then you can sell so he’ll be really happy to help you set up those beads show and craft fairs and oh how much fun you’ll have meeting all those new people and of course other beaders so there you go!!:) :) Very pretty..I love fire agate also..

    Rosie, this is beautiful! The Fire Agate is pretty without being too “orangey”, if you understand what I mean. LOL Love your design! :D

    Husbands are so funny, aren’t they? Mine actually will come with me sometimes to our LBS and has picked out some nice beads for me to purchase. He has a good eye for design, just don’t tell him I said so! ;) LOL He also buys me gift certificates to the LBS, which I love to spend!!! :D

    I really like the color of this necklace, I would so wear it.
    I am lucky there are enough stores that my hubby can go to near my LBS so he just drops me off and we are both happy!!! BTW Copper Penny you are so right, you can never have enough, shoes, purses, and of course BEADS!!!!!
