Tourmaline nuggets and roundelles, silver-plated abacus spacers. Beadalon medium beading wire and silver-plated findings.
What was your inspiration?
I love the colors of tourmaline, although I can seldom take a photo that really does justice to those colors. These nuggets just seemed to stand on their own, with only a few tourmaline roundelles and silver spacers for a little variety in the design.
What are you most proud of?
The simplicity of the necklace to let the beauty of the tourmaline be enough.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't try to overthink it.
