About this design:

This is a piece for a friend's birthday. She likes earth tones and emeralds so i wrapped ( my first!) a tear shaped raw emerald with copper wire, made a twisted frame and a triple strand of matching green seed beads-- then i made a twisted wire clasp-- it was a day of firsts!!


seed beads, copper wire, raw emerald, nymo thread
