    Andrea, I love the way you added the turquoise chips within the framework! Chips & nuggets are a favorite of mine, and with the nice selection that Lima carries, there are so many possibilities. These are great! :)

    These are great!! A wonderful way to use chips in earrings. I’ve got some Moonstone chips that I ‘d like to use with these frames. Thanks!!

    Lovely. I really love the chips on the wire and the open teardrop is perfect.
