    Oh, my!!!!! Did I tell you red is my favorite color, and I love it with black? This is just beautiful, Christine! Where did you find the Red River Stone (is that the one with the black striations?) Gorgeous!

    CAS this is great. I love the way the stones match up. I don’t usually like read and black, but this is stunning, a new take on an old favorite.

    Cool CAS. Where are you finding these three set stones. This is the second I’ve seen of yours with the center stones being a set of 3 stones. I especially like how the bead caps make the black beads look engraved.
