For Wendi

About this design:

I designed this piece as a thank-you to the unpaid executive director of a nonprofit whose board I chair. She has done an incredible job and is moving on. As I stealthily observed her this carnelian druzy kept popping into my mind. had to be the focal piece.


Carnelian/red agate druzy pendant; peach aventurine drums; faceted carnelian rounds; 4, 6 and 8 mm wood beads; copper beads and toggle.

    This is one design that’s going to be tough to part with–it’s my last carnelian druzy and I never saved one for myself. Ah well…I’ll fall in love with another “rock” shortly–wait ’til I get some of my regional cabs wire-wrapped and posted here–Those will be REALLY hard to part with.

    Thanks to all for the compliments!
