About this design:

Part of the reason I started making my own jewelry is so I could finally create what I dreamed of owning.


Red dyed howlite (I think), turquoise colored beads, amber seed beads, great brown beads (see, I am still trying to learn all the names and could never organize like Lorrie does alphabetically!)

    How about Tigerskin Jasper for your brown unknown bead. And isn’t it just great to be able to design what you like and want to wear. (Especially with out the retail store price)

    It’s funny, b/c the first time I wore this, I asked my hubby what he thought – he thought it was a bit much. I didn’t care, b/c it’s what I have wanted for a long time, but did not want to pay even a portion of retail price at the mall. LOVE LOVE LOVE making my own jewelry!!!!!
