What are you most proud of? I like the way the two stones complement each other with two shades of green, with one stone translucent and clear, and the other opaque and patterned.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I frequently start with the pendant and then find stones to string with it, but in this case, it was serendipity. I picked up a few strands of beads, and then a few pendants, when the "perfect" pendant for one of those strands seemed to jump right into my hand from a box of random stone pendants. Even though you should approach a bead show with a shopping list in mind (to keep from going over-budget), keep your eyes, and your mind open.

Elegant. The stones and pendant look like they are perfect for one another.

They were just waiting at the Mineral & Gem Show for me to buy them and put them together!

Sold at my recent, first-ever jewelry show and party. My younger daughter was sad to see it sell as she really liked it, but she already has a whole jewelry cabinet full of my necklaces and bracelets.

Your work is beautiful. It's easy to see that you love making jewelry. So much attention to the slightest detail.
