Summer's Glow

About this design:

A handful of neutral stones came to life with a touch of orange! I made it to sell, but I will probably end up wearing it! It will be a "go with everything" summer favorite !

    Gorgeous set, Cheryl! You are right about that little bit of orange bringing this to life! What did you use for your focal bead? :D

    That is LB’s Oregon Snakeskin Agate…I also used one on the Blue Impressions set…it varies fro grayish to cream to white with a scaly type pattern similar to a snakeskin…had to get over the mental anguish of a “snakeskin” on my neck, but found the stones quite interesting!

    This is very nice. The orange really makes it pop.
    I understand what you mean about the snakeskin anguish. I just try to think of it more as Dragon skin. I can get my head around that a little bit easier.

    Snakes AND Dragons…I might not sleep tonight! Anybody have something else we can call this stone? I am getting squeamish!

    What is there about the word “snake” or “snakeskin” that creeps us out so much? LOL It’s not as if the pendant is really made out of snakeskin, and yet….. LOL

    It really is a beautiful pendant, Cheryl! I like it with the Blue Impression set, too. :D

    Gotta love orange…It glows like tiny points of fire among the soft neutral colors of the stones. If it were mine I’d want to keep it too. Absolutely gorgeous!

    What’s with the snake skin problem Ladies? I had a LIVE snake in my class room one year and a tarantula, too. Can’t be squeamish if you are a Kindergarten Teacher. Just think of the Oregon Snake skin as having a lovely surface pattern and ignore the name. K? You Chickies are a great bunch!
