Carnelian Joy

About this design:

I love the colors of carnelian against white pearls, and how the light reflects off the faceted stones in contrast to the soft luster of pearls. Pure joy!!!

    Thank you! I have just started beading and carnelian is one of the stones that makes me want to do more! In Russian this stone is called “serdolik” which literally means “bringing joy to the heart”…
