Copper and white

About this design:

I have had these white "turquoise" pieces for over a year, but just had not been able to get a design in my "mind's eye." When I did, they went together quite easily (whew!) and I am happy with the results. I didn't put the white stones all the way around because 1) I love the copper, and 2) I didn't want the person wearing it to have to tip forward:)

    I like the balance – usually you see an odd number of large beads, using an even number of large beads is like thinking outside the box!!!!! :)

    Linda – the earrings are just in a picture with the pics of the bracelet:) Thank you everyone – this was a bit “out of the box” for me. I love the challenge of always changing up my “style” – whatever it may be. I want you to know that your comments and compliments mean so much because I have seen your work and you each are so talented. This is such an encouraging place to be. Thank you.

    Ravin – we would certainly look like Mutt and Jeff together (an old timey comic strip:). You are tall and slim and I am short (5’2″) and not:) I have finally achieved the honor of being the tallest of the 3 sisters in our family – the middle one was always shorter, and the eldest one has shrunk 2 inches:) You gotta take tall where you can get it:)
