New Necklaces

“Pieces of Eight”

After some distress and 2 cracked stones, all better. Persian turquoise replaced the hemimorphite with the patience of a monk! It’s not the same, yet still beautiful.  I tried it with all different colors of stones that randomly would fit into that setting. I almost went orange/translucent, but I didn’t want the symmetry. It was a tough call to go with an opaque stone, but it was the only choice I had that looked remotely decent. oh well! It’s done now! Today I hope to finish the other one. I’ve also laid out stones for two more “Pieces of Eight” necklaces.
