What are you most proud of? What I cannot take credit for -- the beauty of the Prenite gemstones themselves.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When I first started making beaded jewelry with semi-precious gemstones, I didn't understand why anyone would want anything other than 8 mm round beads because they are so easy to work with. Now I look for unique gemstone shapes and sizes because 8 mm rounds just don't always show the true beauty and character of the gemstone to its best advantage. Step outside your comfort zone and try something different!

Very elegant.

Thank you. I think Prehnite is a very cool and elegant gemstone in and of itself.
