Monica's Lure

About this design:

Inspired by a family photo, including my cousin's college student daughter, training for teaching; she was wearing these colors. Made earrings to match. Her mom opened the package to describe it to her daughter, who can hardly wait to see it. I love it for its symmetry, variety, and the quality of the materials. It is also comfortable to wear, novel, and dresses up with skirts or down with jeans. I have read men like these colors, so maybe it will attract them as a conversation piece. You can never tell. My bear models. it looks nice on him too.


Turquoise, onyx, and variety of silverplated beads I found in my stash.

    Really like this bracelet! Love the symetry too; those silver plated beads set off the turquoise nicely.

    I agree with all of the above, and, obviously, so does your darling little bear! This would definitely be a piece that I would wear often, and I bet your cousin’s daughter does, too! :D
