First up, Turquoise and Carnelian and Sterling. I have been playing with these turquoise chunks for over 5 years. In the end...kept it simple. They are so bold on their own. Why was I struggling to do even more with them?!
Next is a Pyrite piece. I beaded around a few of the rounds and added a little detail to the rectangle. It actually turned out just as I saw it in my head. I really like the pyrite...I will definitely be getting more in the future.
This next one is a Lariat with a zigzag stitch in copper colored seed beads. I finished it off in turquoise colored rounds (that may be turquoise but I am not sure...what I do know is I used them a lot this summer! love them! Perfect color and perfect size!), gifted me to me by Cynthia at Antiquity Travelers.
I couldn't get a great photo of it, but I really do like this piece.
Last but certainly not least is one I put on Facebook a few weeks back. Mandalas in turquoise, bronze, and red. There will be more of these! This was my favorite to make out of all of the necklaces. There was a great flow to the process. There is something about going around in all those circles that gives me peace and keeps me centered.
