Firey Donut & Chunky Carnelian

About this design:

Another necklace that was going to be a double strand but then got made into 2 separate for more versatility. Orange is not generally a color I am drawn to; however, these carnelian nuggets and fire agate donut just drew me in.

    Amazing.I like orange but I don’t have much of it. I would need to go shopping for a top to go with it. Like thats a bad thing…

    The contrast of the two necklaces is striking, but the color really makes it work. This would look pretty with a soft camel colored top.

    Thanks again for the great feedback! Like I mentioned orange it not a color I would normally have been drawn to if shopping; however, I really love this color when I am shopping for beads. go figure! ;P
    Regarding the chunky – I have always loved larger necklaces/jewelry. I truly think of jewelry as an accessory – not only to your outfit, but to your mood!
