New Beginnings

About this design:

This set was for my nephew's wife Jenny. Last spring she was diagnosed with an aggressive breast CA and just finished chemo and radiation treatment in January. The green lentil leaf beads symbolize a new beginning for Jenny and she loves the set!


Green Aventurine leaf lentils and beads, Green Moonstone beads from LB, SP pewter spacers, silver beadcaps and magnetic clasp

    Beautiful. I love the lentil beads and the Bali spacers are a lovely touch. I believe in the healing power of semi-precious stone, or even with glass, depending on the color. Of course, she loves it.
