Blue Lace Agate with Indigo Lapis Lazuli Roundelles, Bali Silver accents and Lapis Lazuli with Pyrite Silver-mounted Pendant. Beadalon beading wire and silver-plated findings.
What was your inspiration?
After seeing a relatively plain string of Blue Lace Agate beads accented by a large Lapis Lazuli and silver pendant offered on a TV shopping channel for $180+ ON SALE, I was inspired to see how much better I could do on my own. This necklace cost me less than $30 to make. Check out bead vendors on the web for your own bargain creation.
What are you most proud of?
That it is such a simple, but attractive design that has brought me lots of compliments and offers to buy -- but I won't sell it because I like it too much.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Shop carefully for good quality stones and pendants. Make up your own combination.
